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 On that shore, on that bright golden shore,
Where the darkness of night is unknown;
Where the bright angels stand evermore,
Glory-crowned at the Father’s great throne;
They are waiting to welcome us there,
To the joys and eternal delight,
Of a home in that mansion so fair,
Where earth’s sorrows shall fade from our sight.

Refrain:
They are waiting, they are waiting,
They are waiting to welcome us there.
They are waiting, they are waiting,
They are waiting to welcome us there.

2 By and by we shall rest in that land,
With the loved and the lost gone before;
By and by we will join that glad band,
And hosannas will sing evermore;
Heaven’s king in His beauty we’ll see,
And the wealth of that city unrolled,
And O what a glad day ’twill be,
When we stand in that city of gold. [Refrain]

3 Every day we are nearing the shore,
All the sorrows of earth soon shall cease;
We will soon hear the dip of the oar,
Soon repose in that haven of peace;
O how happy are they who have gone
To that realm of eternity fair!
They are waiting, their pilgrimage done,
They are waiting to welcome us there. [Refrain]
