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.

Jesus, o'er the grave victorious, Conquering death and conquering hell

Representative Text

1 Jesus, o’er the grave victorious,
Conquering death, and conquering hell,
Reign Thou in Thy might all glorious,
Heav’n and earth Thy triumph swell.

2 Saints in Thee approach the Father
Asking in Thy name alone;
He, in Thee, with love increasing,
Gives and glorifies the Son.

3 By a life of love and labor
Doing all the Father’s will;
Giving to each suppliant sufferer,
Precious balm for every ill.

4 Here, in Thee, is peace forever;
We can tribulation bear;
Kiss Thy cross, with rapture knowing
Thou hast conquered suffering there.
