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 Jesus has lived! and we would bring
The world’s glad thanks today;
And at His feet while anthems ring,
The grateful offering lay.

2 Jesus has lived! and His pure life
So perfect and sublime,
Shall conquer man’s dark sin and strife
Through every rank and clime.

3 Jesus has died! and o’er the stars
Gone home to God on high:
He burst the grave’s cold prison bars,
And said, "Man cannot die."

4 Jesus yet lives! and from the sky
Where victory He wrote,
Before the good man’s closing eye,
Visions of glory float.

5 Jesus yet lives! and oh! may we,
While in this valley dim,
So feel our immortality,
That we may be like Him.
