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 hope to meet you all in glory,
When the storms of life are o’er;
I hope to tell the dear old story,
On the blessèd shining shore.

On the shining shore,
On the golden strand,
In our Father’s home,
In the happy land:
I hope to meet you there,
I hope to meet you there—
A crown of victory wear—
In glory.

2 I hope to meet you all in glory,
By the tree of life so fair;
I hope to praise our dear Redeemer
For the grace that brought me there. [Refrain]

3 I hope to meet you all in glory,
Round the Savior’s throne above;
I hope to join the ransomed army
Singing now redeeming love. [Refrain]

4 I hope to meet you all in glory,
When my work on earth is o’er;
I hope to clasp your hands rejoicing
On the bright eternal shore. [Refrain]
