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. Hear ye the glad good news from Heav’n?
Life to a death-doomed race is giv’n!
Christ on the cross for you and me
Purchased a pardon full and free.

Refrain

He that believeth hath everlasting life;
He that believeth, he that believeth,
He that believeth hath everlasting life.

2. When we were lost, the Son of God
Made an atonement by His blood:
When we the glad good news believe,
Then the atonement we receive. [Refrain]

3. Why not believe the glad good news?
Why still the voice of God refuse?
Why not believe, when God hath said,
All, all our guilt on Him was laid. [Refrain]
