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 have read how the Lord,
When a babe in Bethlehem,
In a humble manger cradle was lain;
What He bore for a world which
His love would not condemn,
And I learned that He is coming back again.

Refrain:
He is coming back again,
And o’er the universe to reign;
He’s not coming back to die,
But will take us home on high,
Yes, our blessèd Lord is coming back again.

2 I have read how He died
On the cross of Calvary,
Where He shed His precious blood, and was slain;
He who preached to the poor, and
Who made the blind to see,
Told them He was surely coming back again. [Refrain]

3 Then I read how the Lord,
When the thorn crown pressed His brow,
Asked forgiveness for the evil in men;
How He told His disciples
That He must leave them now,
But He promised He was coming back again. [Refrain]
