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.

The Light Of Bethlehem

Representative Text

1 Jesus, the Light of Bethlehem
Is shining to us all!
So crystal clear, it’s ever dear,
And makes the darkness fall,
And makes the darkness fall,
And throws the darkness to its fall!

2 Jesus was born in Bethlehem
Inside a darkened room;
But it was bright that holy night,
For He lit up the gloom,
For He lit up the gloom,
His cheery light chased out the gloom.

3 Jesus, the Babe in Bethlehem
Grew up to be the Light!
Where sin had been, He comes right in
And makes our hearts all bright,
And makes our hearts all bright,
And makes our humble hearts all bright!
