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 God is Love, the Sun, dispelling
Darkness, doubt; how fast they flee;
Beam of glory, terror quelling,
Fall, fall on me.

Fall on me, fall on me,
Beam of Glory, fall on me.

2 God is Love and Law united,
Mercy joined to just degree,
Mercy, tho’ his law I’ve slighted,
Fall, fall on me. [Refrain]

3 God is Love, answer to anguish,
Ah! his face I fain would see,
Eye of pity, as I languish,
Fall, fall on me. [Refrain]

4 God is Love and Life unending;
Was, and is, and e’er shall be,
Softly may his peace descending
Fall, fall on me. [Refrain]
