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 highest love, in lowliest guise,
To this our fallen world displayed,
May I discern with cleansèd eyes
The Godhead in our flesh arrayed!

2 O Love, the very Word of God,
Content an infant shape to wear,
And in a stable’s mean abode
To shield Thee from December’s air.

3 O Babe divine, before Thy face
Be mine to bow the thankful knee,
And by Thy soul converting grace
Become a child myself in Thee!

4 One only God, the Father, Son,
And Holy Spirit, we revere,
The everlasting Three in One,
Creator, Savior, Comforter.
