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 is coming as yonder he went,
How wonderful seemeth the story;
His own kept alive, to see the event,
Caught up to meet him in glory.

Caught up to meet him in glory,
And ever to be with him then;
How wonderful, seemeth the story,
Repeat it again and again.

2 Jesus is coming, but when it shall be
No angel has been told the story;
The day and the hour is deep mystery;
Caught up to meet him in glory. [Refrain]

3 Jesus is coming his loved ones to claim,
His word is the proof of the story;
All those shall be safe who trust in his name,
Caught up to meet him in glory. [Refrain]

4 Jesus is coming with archangel voice,
How wonderful soundeth the story;
Too late it will be to then make a choice,
His own will meet him in glory. [Refrain]
