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. In every cloud of pain and loss
There is a silver lining;
Beyond the shadow of the cross
The Morning Star is shining.

Upon my way from day to day,
With hope my path adorning,
I see afar the Morning Star,
The matchless Star of Morning.

2. We need the trials we must bear
Like gold that needs refining;
But, oh, there is no sorrow where
The Morning Star is shining! [Refrain]

3. Temptations greet us day by day,
To sin our hearts inclining;
But still and bright upon our way
The Morning Star is shining. [Refrain]

4. In yonder city, glad and free,
I’ll cease my sad repining;
How sweet to hope it is for me
The Morning Star is shining! [Refrain]
