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.

Met in thy sacred name, O Lord

Representative Text

1 Met in thy sacred name, O Lord,
To worship thee below,
Grant that each soul with joy may thrill,
With love each bosom glow.

2 In festive scenes, mid giddy throngs

In truth's free saving light.

3 Thy cheering promise, Lord, we wait,

Shall in my name together meet,
There will I choose to be."

4 Inspire our praise, direct our prayer,
Thy Spirit fill each heart;
Cloth thou with power each thought and word,
To all thy grace impart.

Amen.
