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.

One by One, We're Passing Over

Representative Text

1. One by one we’re passing over,
One by one we cross the tide;
Soon we’ll reach the peaceful harbor,
Rest at last on Canaan’s side.

Rest at last, when earth is past,
Rest at last on Canaan’s shore;
Rest at last, when earth is past,
With our loved ones gone before.

2. There in that bright land of beauty,
With the loved ones gone before,
We will meet in blest reunion,
Meet again to part no more. [Refrain]

3. Then dispel! thou darkening shadow!
Shine upon us, light above!
Take away the sting of parting,
Bring us soon to those we love. [Refrain]

4. But if we must wait and suffer,
Ease the hurt, and soothe the pain;
Make us know that in the daybreak
We shall see our loved again. [Refrain]
