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.

Ён у труне ляжаў

Representative Text

1 Ён у труне ляжаў, наш Адкупіцель,
Дня трэцяга чакаў Збаўца Ісус!

Ён з труны ўстаў,
І ўсе путы ворага парваў,
Уваскрос, бо сьмерць і пекла перамог,
Над усім уладу даў Ісусу Бог.
Уваскрос! Уваскрос!
Алелуя! Уваскрос!

2 Быў запячатаны Наш Адкупіцель;
Спаў пад аховаю Збаўца Ісус! [Прыпеў]

3 Сьмерць пакарыў Сабе Наш Адкупіцель;
Волю дае Сваім Збаўца Ісус! [Прыпеў]
