During our last fund drive one donor said this: "I love hymns ... If you asked for money, it means you need it! Please keep the work going. And please, accept my widow's mite. God bless you."

She was right. We only ask for money twice a year, and we do so because we need it.

Representative Text

1. Gabriel's message does away
Satan's curse and Satan's sway,
out of darkness brings our Day:

Refrain:
so, behold,
all the gates of heaven unfold.

2. He that comes despised shall reign;
he that cannot die, be slain;
death by death its death shall gain: (Refrain)

3. Weakness shall the strong confound;
by the hands, in grave clothes wound,
Adam's chains shall be unbound. (Refrain)

4. Art by art shall be assailed;
to the cross shall Life be nailed;
from the grave shall hope be hailed: (Refrain)
