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 Go, messenger of Christ, proclaim
The glories of Emmanuel’s name;
The nations wait to hear thee tell
Of Him who saves from death and hell.

2 Go, armed with truth and filled with love,
Go, harmless as the gentle dove,
In wisdom and with burning zeal,
Go, and the way of life reveal.

3 Go, clothed in majesty divine,
Go, and thy grace with glory shine;
Go, while the Spirit’s quickening power
Doth fit thee for each trying hour.

4 And when against thee foes shall rise
And former friends shall thee despise;
Remember that the Lord will be
A comfort and defense for thee.

5 And when thy work on earth is o’er,
And thou shalt preach to men no more,
Unceasing joys shall thee await
In thine eternal blest estate.
