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.

Jesu! Our Eternal King!

Representative Text

1 Jesu! Our eternal king!
Thy Epiphany we sing,
Manifested by Thy grace
To our lost and fallen race.

2 O’er Thy cradle shone a star,
Guiding pilgrims from afar,
Bearing to their maker’s feet
Gold and myrrh and incense sweet.

3 In fair Jordan’s crystal wave
Thou wast merged our souls to save;
To Thee came the heavenly Dove,
With the Father’s voice of love.

4 At the feast in Galilee
Wondering guests Thy glory see;
Water owns Thy power divine,
Changing into ruddy wine.

5 Jesu! Lord of life divine!
Let Thy star upon us shine,
Wash us with Thy saving blood,
Be Thy wine our sacred food.

6 Till, upborne in seraph’s wing,
Heaven’s Epiphany we sing,
Praising with the angel host,
Father, Son and Holy Ghost.
