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 Rejoice, my soul, the trumpet sounds,
And calls thee to the strife;
Forget the things that are behind,
And seek the crown of life.

Refrain:
Press onward, onward, oh, my soul,
Look up to Christ, thy Lord—
You fight, I’ll conquer,
He hath said;
Trust in His faithful word.

2 A host of witnesses around,
Behold thee in the fight;
Keep on the path their feet have trod,
And keep the crown in sight. [Refrain]

3 Thy glorious captain from on high,
With joy looks down on thee,
" fight, I’ll conquer," is His word,
"I’ll give the victory." [Refrain]
