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

I heard a great voice from heaven,
Saying unto me, write,
From henceforth, write,
From henceforth, write,
From henceforth, write,
Blessed are the dead that die in the Lord.
Yea, saith the Spirit, for they rest,
For they rest, for they rest, for they rest
For they rest from their labors,
From their labors and their works, which do follow,
Follow, follow, which do follow them.
Which do follow them.
