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.

O Beautiful!

Representative Text

1 O beautiful that heavenly scene:
That mansion in the sky!
Our Father has prepared for those
Who follow truth and right.

Refrain:
Lord Jesus Christ, Lord Jesus Christ;
The Son of God on high!
Forever we will live with Thee
Nor ever mourn or die!

2 O beautiful for powerful love—
That brought Christ from the grave!
He conquered sin and Satan’s host,
For all He came to save! [Refrain]

3 O beautiful the feet of those
Who eagerly pursue
The zeal of Christ, the Lord of hosts—
And preach the gospel truth! [Refrain]

4 O beautiful the meek and low:
Who seek not their own;
But humbly follow after Christ—
His blessing is their crown! [Refrain]

5 O beautiful, our heavenly home,
Far better than below;
The city not by human hands
Surrounding God’s own throne! [Refrain]
