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. Gathered here in that great Presence,
Every earthly light grows dim:
Angels fall in dread and reverence,
Men redeemed take up the hymn:
Holy, Holy,

3. Goodness finds its good within Him!
Truth finds truth upon His tongue!
He is Beauty of all Beauty,
Let His praise be ever sung!

4. All must do what You require,
For Your Law remains the same:
Give our hearts a great desire
For the hallowing of Your Name!
Holy, Holy,
Holy is that Sacred Name!
