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 Lord, we sing Thy great humility:
By Thee redeemed, our all we bring to Thee.
That we might live
Thou didst on Calvary give
Thy life for our salvation.
Oh great humiliation!

2 Before all worlds Thou art, who yet didst deign
To take our flesh and bow to mortal pain.
Thee crucified
Thy guilty foes deride:
O Lord, for their salvation
Was Thy humiliation!

3 No more let pride in us, O Jesu! dwell,
Or vainly shall our praise Thy sorrows tell.
May all like Thee
Now meek and lowly be:
So bless our contemplation
Of Thy humiliation.
