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

let the shrill Trumpet's warlike Voice
make Rocks and hills his Praise rebound
Praise him with Harps melodious noise
and gentle Psaltery's silver Sound

let Virgin Troops soft Timbrels bring
and some with graceful motion dance
let Instruments with various Stings
with Organs joind his praise advance
with Organs joind his Praise advance
with Organs joind his Praise advance

let Instruments with various Stings
with Organs joind his praise advance
with Organs joind his Praise advance
with Organs joind his Praise advance
