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

We sound Your love abroad.

3 As dead indeed to sin,
We rise to walk anew,

We follow only You.

4 Baptized into Your death,
With You again we rise,
To newness of a life of faith,
To new and endless joys.
