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 Great is the Lord, who ruleth over all!
Wake, wake, and sing,
Wake, wake, and sing!
Down at His feet in adoration fall,
Praise and magnify our King!

O ye redeemed above,
Strike, strike your harps of love,
Hail the blessed one,
Hail the Mighty One,
Sweetly His wonders tell,
Loudly His glories swell,
Praise and magnify our King.

2 Great is the Lord, who spake and it was done;
Wake, wake, and sing,
Wake, wake, and sing!
Honour and strength, dominion He has won,
Praise and magnify our King! [Refrain]

3 Great is the Lord: oh, come with holy mirth;
Wake, wake, and sing,
Wake, wake, and sing!
Come and rejoice, ye nations of the earth,
Praise and magnify our King! [Refrain]

4 Great is the Lord, and holy is His name!
Wake, wake, and sing,
Wake, wake, and sing!
Angels and men, His wondrous works proclaim,
Praise and magnify our King! [Refrain]
