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. Hark! the skies with music sound,
Heav’nly glory beams around;
Christ is born! the angels sing
Glory to the newborn king.

2. Peace is come, goodwill appears;
Sinners wipe away your tears;
Christ for you in flesh today
Humbly in the manger lay.

3. Shepherds, tending flocks by night,
Heard the song, and saw the light;
Took their reeds, and softest strains
Echoed through the happy plains.

4. Mortals, hail the glorious king!
Richest incense cheerful bring;
Praise and love Immanuel’s name,
And His boundless grace proclaim.

5. Glory, praise, and blessing be,
Lord, our Savior, unto Thee;
Thee let Heaven and earth adore,
God o’er all forevermore.
