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, the King is risen,
He lives today on high;
The grave no more a prison,
But the doorway to the sky.

Rejoice, rejoice,
Our praises we will sing;
Rejoice, rejoice,
In Christ the risen King.

2. The risen King stands longing
To meet us at God’s throne;
To Him we may go thronging,
Since angels moved the stone. [Refrain]

3. Dear Jesus, we are coming
Along the narrow way;
We’ll meet you in the morning
Of the resurrection day. [Refrain]
