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. O blessèd be the Lord
For His eternal Word,
That sheds around the paths we tread
Its calm and steady rays:
Come, worship at His throne;
O make His wonders known,
And let His temple gates be filled
With songs of praise.

2. O blessèd be the Lord,
In Heav’n and earth adored;
The God of truth and righteousness,
Our hope beyond the grave;
Let anthems to the skies
In joyful concert rise;
O praise the Lord, whose mighty arm
Is strong to save.

3. O blessèd be our king,
Whose name the angels sing,
While all the ransomed host above
Their crowns before Him cast;
O blessèd be our king,
Who soon His own shall bring;
Forever there, to rest from care,
With Him at last.
