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.

1. Jubilate! Jubilate!
Christ the Lord is risen today!
Hear the mighty chorus swelling,
Over land and over sea!
River unto river calling,
Mountain peak to distant lea!

Refrain
Jubilate! Jubilate!
Christ the Lord is risen today!
Jubilate! Jubilate!
Christ the Lord is risen today!

2. Waken, roses, from your slumber!
Lilies, wake to greet your Lord!
Happy birds in wildwood arches,
Wake to sing in sweet accord!
Lift your voices, O ye maples!
Sing aloud, ye stately pines! [Refrain]
