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 Holy Ghost on this great day inspire

Representative Text

1 O Holy Ghost, on this great day inspire
our souls, we pray, with pentecostal fire.
Lord, breathe upon us with your heav'nly wind,
that it refresh and purify our mind.

2 Kindle within us and preserve that fire,
which will with holy love our breast inspire,

3 Endow us richly with your gifts and grace
to fit us for the duties of our place;
so open now our lips, our hearts so raise,
that both our hearts and lips may give you praise.
