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 God our Father, we would come to Thee
In virtue of our Savior’s precious blood;
All distance gone; our souls by grace set free;
We worship Thee, our Father and our God.

2. We would, O God, present before Thy face
The fragrant name of Thy belovèd Son;
By faith we view Him in that holy place,
Which, by His dying, He for us has won.

3. We share Thy joy in Him who sitteth there;
Our hearts delight in Thy delight in Him;
Chiefest of thousands, fairer than the fair;
His glory naught can tarnish, naught can dim.

4. We bow in worship now before Thy throne,
By faith the object of Thy love would see;
Who, in the midst, His brethren’s song doth lead.
To Him, our Savior, shall the glory be!
