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.

Oh, Sing to the Lord

Representative Text

1 Oh, sing to the Lord; make a jubilant noise!
Glory be to God!
Oh, serve him with joy; in his presence now rejoice!
Sing praise unto God out of Zion!

2 Not we, but the Lord is our Maker, our God;
Glory be to God!
His people we are, and the sheep led by his rod;
Sing praise unto God out of Zion!

3 Oh, enter his gates with thanksgiving and praise;
Glory be to God!
To bless him and thank him our voices we will raise;
Sing praise unto God out of Zion!

4 For good is the Lord, and his mercy is sure;
Glory be to God!
To all generations his truth shall still endure;
Sing praise unto God out of Zion!
