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 He is coming again with great glory and pow’r,
To reign on this earth as the King over all;
And the nations shall bend ‘neath the sway of His rod,
And the desert rejoice at the presence of God.

Refrain:
And the powers of darkness shall crumble and fall;
In the glorious light of the ALL-IN-ALL;
In the glorious light, in the glorious light,
In the glorious light of the ALL-IN-ALL.

2 When His righteousness covers this earth as a sea,
No sorrow or care then shall burden the soul;
At his presence the hills shall rejoice and be glad,
And not one in the bounds of His realm shall be sad. [Refrain]

3 All of sin and of sickness shall vanish away,
The heav’ns shall be seen coming down as the dew,
At the presence of Him, the Almighty and King,
All the cohorts of earth shall break forth and shall sing. [Refrain]

4 Neither weeping nor death then will mar the fair scene;
No more shall the terrors of Satan appal;
Our rejoicing in Jesus will then be complete,
For His enemies all shall be under His feet. [Refrain]

5 Then “farewell to all sin” let us joyfully say,
Farewell to its pleasures, farewell to its mirth;
All its follies and joys then as nothing shall be,
When the Lord in His glory and beauty we see. [Refrain]
