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.

1 Hear what the voice from heaven declares
To those in Christ who die:
Released from all their earthly cares,
They'll reign with Him on high.
2 Then why lament departed friends,
Or shake at death's alarms?
Death's but the servant Jesus sends
to call us to His arms.
3 If sin be pardon'd, we're secure,
Death hath no sting beside;
The law gave sin its strength and power,
But Christ, our Ransom, died.
4 The grave of all His saints He bless'd,
When in the grave He lay:
and, rising thence, their hopes He raised
To everlasting day.
5 Then joyfully, while life we have,
To Christ, our Life, we'll sing,
"Where is thy victory, O grave?
And where, O death, they sting?"
Hymnal: according to the use of the Protestant Episcopal Church in the United States of America, 1871
