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 the bliss of one sweet hour
When the heart forgets its care,
And the gently falling shower
Brings the joy of answered prayer;
O the happy, happy tears
Bursting forth like gems of light,
While the Father’s smile appears
As they sparkle warm and bright.

Refrain:
O the bliss of one sweet hour
When the heart forgets its care,
And the gently falling shower
Brings the joy of answered prayer.

2 When our songs of rapture swell,
And our souls in Christ are one,
When we meet His love to tell,
O ’tis Heaven on earth begun;
And we sigh and long to stay
With the friends we hold so dear,
But the moment glide away—
And our call they will not hear. [Refrain]

3 There’ll be more of rapture still
Than the heart has ever known
When we climb the towering hill
Leading upward to the throne;
Then beyond this fleeting shore,
And the stormy billows’ foam,
With the millions gone before
We shall meet and rest at home. [Refrain]
