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 Little birds are singing, in the leafy trees;
Little flowers are waving in the gentle breeze.

2 In the sunny meadows there are lambs at play;
And the bees are working gladly all the day.

3 Lord, Thy little children sweet as flowers would be,
Pouring forth the fragrance of their lives to Thee.

4 Teach us, well and gladly all our tasks to do;
Let us always please Thee in our playtime, too.

5 Like the birds so happy se Thy praises sing,
While to Thee, O Savior, loving hearts we bring.
