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

1 Judah’s mountains heard the echo
Of the angel chorus sing,
As they floated, downward floated,
Earthward on their shining wings.

Glory to God in the highest,
The valleys re-echo the strain;
Glory god in the highest,
Peace on earth, good will to men.

2 Judah’s rivers lent their murmur
To the angels’ song of love;
As they floated, downward floated,
Like a holy sacred dove. [Refrain]

3 Judah’s shepherds saw the glory
Heard the voices singing sweet,
Heard the glad angelic story,
Falling prostrate at their feet. [Refrain]
