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 Not yet beneath our captain’s feet
Lie sin and death, and pain and woe;
Not yet the anthem, clear and sweet,
Of Heav’n, above, on earth, below.

Refrain:
Rejoice and shout aloud,
For soon the time will be,
When light shall break the cloud,
When Christ shall reign supreme,
Eternally.

2 Yet come it shall, and even now
Faith views the victory as won;
All hearts must yield, all knees must bend
To God’s beloved, anointed Son. [Refrain]

3 Like bugle blast, rings clear and strong
That pledge of prophet, from afar;
He shall not fail to right the wrong,
The isles shall speed the conqueror’s car. [Refrain]

4 Amen, Lord Jesus, onward sweep,
The lingering ages wait the sway;
The scepter stretch o’er land and deep,
Bring in the golden noontide day. [Refrain]

5 With yearning heart and lifted eye
The toilers watch and ever sing;
Thy kingdom, glory, power come nigh,
Let hallelujahs sweetly ring. [Refrain]
