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 One by one God's faithful workers
Yield their bodies to the foe,
One by one our ranks are thinning,
Where's the end but God doth know;
But, look up! my soul, despond not,
Signs fulfill in earth and sky!
Lift thy head, rejoice! take courage!
Thy redemption draweth nigh!

2 Of this truth now be persuaded,
He who loved us, loves us still;
When we patiently have waited,
Faithfully have done his will,
Then will open wide the portal
To the mansions bright and fair,
And he'll bid us life immortal
With our precious loved ones share.

3 Then our toil will be forgotten,
All our painful vigils past;
Times when Satan almost conquered
Nevermore their shadows cast;
For he's coming! Prince of Glory!
Coming! victory to give!
Ring it out! the rapturous story!
Life eternal! Saints shall live!

4 Death no more can claim God's people--
Graves no more hide from our sight
Those we've loved, esteemed and honored--
Those who've helped us in the fight.
Praise the name of our Redeemer!
Soon the saved beneath the sod
Will, with us, sing Allelulias
In the presence of our God!
