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 Ja, wie lieblich ist's und fein,
durch den Herrn geeint zu sein
und in Seiner Jünger Kreis
Ihm zu bringen Lob und Preis!

2 Wie des Hermons frischer Tau

4 Halleluja sei dem Herrn
dargebracht von nah und fern!
Dank sei Ihm in dieser Zeit,
Lob und Ehr in Ewigkeit!
