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.
I beheld, and lo a great multitude, which no man could number,
Thousands of thousands, and ten times thousands,
(Repeat previous line twice).
207
Stood before the Lamb, and they had palms in their hands,
And they cease not day nor night, saying,
Holy, holy, holy, holy, holy, Lord God Almighty,
Which was, and is, and is to come,
(Repeat previous line).
208
And I heard a mighty angel flying through the midst of heaven,
Crying with a loud voice, woe, woe, woe, woe,
Be unto the earth by reason of the trumpet which is yet to sound.
209
And when the last trumpet sounded, the great men an nobles,
Rich men and poor, bond and free, gathered themselves together,
And cried to the rocks and mountains to fall upon them,
And hide them from the face of Him that sitteth on the throne,
For the great day of the Lord is come, and who shall be able to stand?
And who shall be able to stand?
