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. Lord, in love Thou didst receive us,
Ere creation as Thine own.
And that love will never leave us,
But will raise us to Thy throne.
Thou wilt come, and we shall meet Thee;
Then the saints whom Thou wilt raise,
Will with those remaining greet Thee,
Joining in the song of praise.

2. Then shall we, Thine image bearing,
Know Thee, Lord, as we are known;
With our blood-washed robes, declaring
What for us Thy death hath done.
Thus we all our joys expressing,
Shall for ever praise Thy name,
Glory, power, dominion, blessing,
Be to God and to the Lamb.
