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. Mary beheld Him, and Master! cried,
After He came from the tomb;
Suddenly Jesus stood in their midst,
Entered the tight shut room.

Refrain
He who was dead is alive again!
He who was dead is alive again!
Broken the stout, icy clutches of death—
He who was dead is alive again!

2. Peter beheld Him there on the shore,
Ate with Him there by the sea;
Jesus was saying, with lips once dead,
Peter, dost thou love Me? [Refrain]

3. Thomas beheld Him there in the room,
Called Him his Master and Lord,
Put forth his fingers into the holes
Made by the nails and sword. [Refrain]
