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.

1 It is finished! Blessèd Jesus,
Thou hast breathed thy latest sigh,
Teaching us the sons of Adam
How the Son of God can die.
2 Lifeless lies the piercèd Body,
Resting in its rocky bed;
Thou hast left the Cross of anguish
For the mansion of the dead.
3 In the hidden realms of darkness
Shines a light unseen before,
When the Lord of dead and living
Enters at the lowly door.
4 Lo, in spirit, rich in mercy
Comes he from the world above,
Preaching to the souls in prison
Tidings of his dying love.
5 Lo, the heavenly light around him,
As he draws his people near;
All amazed they come rejoicing
At the gracious words they hear.
6 Patriarch and priest and prophet
Gather round him as he stands,
In adoring faith and gladness
Hearing of the piercèd hands.
7 There in lowliest joy and wonder
Stands the robber by his side,
Reaping now the blessèd promise
Spoken by the Crucified.
8 Jesus, Lord of our salvation,
Let thy mercy rest on me;
Grant me too, when life is finished,
Rest in Paradise with thee.Source: The New English Hymnal #99
