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 believe in the story never old,
I believe it!
I believe in the Savior long foretold,
I believe it!
I believe he's more precious far than gold,
I believe it!
I am saved by believing on his name.

Chorus:
I am saved by believing on his name,
I am saved, for his word is just the same,
'Tis the same "whosoever,"
For his love changeth never,
I am saved by believing on his name.

2 I believe in the tidings of his birth,
I believe it!
I believe in the song of peace on earth,
I believe it!
I believe 'twas a time of joy and mirth,
I believe it!
I am saved by believing on his name. [Chorus]

3 I believe that the shepherds heard the song,
I believe it!
I believe that they saw the heav'nly throng,
I believe it!
I believe that the glory shone around,
I believe it!
I am saved by believing on his name. [Chorus]

4 I believe that the wise men saw his star,
I believe it!
I believe that they followed from afar,
I believe it!
I believe that they found the Saivor there,
I believe it!
I am saved by believing on his name. [Chorus]

5 I believe that he came to seek and save,
I believe it!
I believe that eternal life he gave,
I believe it!
I believe I shall live beyond the grave,
I believe it!
I am saved by believing on his name. [Chorus]
