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 Glory be to God on high,
Glory to the Son,
Glory to the Holy Ghost,
Matchless Three in One!
Who in the beginning were,
In the present be;
Who shall reign world without end,
Thro’ eternity.

2 Thee we worship, Thee adore,
Matchless Three in One!
By our heav’nly Father loved,
Ransomed by His Son,
By the spirit purified,
And from day to day
Guarded, O so watchfully,
Lest we go astray.

3 Thee we worship, Thee adore,
Matchless Three in One!
O accept our humble praise,
Father, Spirit, Son;
May the holy Comforter
Be our constant guide;
Then with Thee, in earth and heav’n,
Truly we’ll abide.
