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.

Antiphon in Easter Season:
I will sing to the Lord
for he has risen up in might, alleuia.

for he is lofty and uplifted;
the horse and its rider has he
hurled into the sea.

2. the Lord is my strength and my refuge;
the Lord has become my Savior.

3. This is my God and I will praise him,
the God of my people and I will exalt him.

4. The Lord is a mighty warrior;
Yahweh is his Name.

5. The chariots of Pharaoh and his army
has he hurled into the sea;
the finest of those who bear armor
have been droned in the Red Sea.

6. The fathomless deep has overwhelmed them;
they sank into the depths like a stone.

7. Your right hand, O Lord, is glorious in might;
your right hand, O Lord, has overthrown the enemy.

8. Who can be compared with you,
O Lord, among the gods?
who is like you, glorious in holiness,
awesome in renown, and worker of wonders?

9. You stretched your right hand;
the earth swallowed them up.

10. with your constant love
you led the people you redeemed;
with your might you brought them
in safety to your holy dwelling.

11. You will bring them in
and plant them on the mount
of your possession,

12. The resting-place you have made
for yourself, O Lord,
the sanctuary, O Lord,
that your hand has established.

13. The Lord shall reign
for ever and for ever. [Ant.]

Glory to the Father and to the Son,
and to the Holy Spirit:
As it was in the beginning, is now,
and will be for ever. Amen. [Ant.]
