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.

The Reign of Christ

O God, to Thy Anointed King

Published in 2 hymnals

Representative Text

1 O God, to thy Anointed King
Give truth and righteousness;
Thy people He will justly judge
And give the poor redress.

2 Then every fruitful mountain side
Shall yield its rich increase,
And righteousness in all the land
Shall bear the fruit of peace.

3 The poor man's cause He will maintain,
The needy He will bless,
And He will break the strength of those
Who would the poor oppress.

4 So men shall fear Thee wile the sun
In daily splendor glows,
And through all ages, while the moon
On earth its light bestows.

5 Like rain upon the new-mown grass,
That falls refreshingly,
Like gentle showers that cheer the earth,
So shall His coming be.

6 The righteous in His glorious day
Shall flourish and increase;
The earth, until the moon shall fade,
Shall have abundant peace.

The Psalter: with responsive readings, 1912
