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.

1. Rejoice with me, for now I’m free,
I joy in a new pleasure;
From God above, the gift of love
Is mine in fullest measure.

Refrain
Rejoice, rejoice, Christ is my choice,
His cross alone my glory;
While life shall last, when death is past,
I’ll sing the joyful story.

2. Once vile with sin, Christ makes me clean,
Gone is all condemnation,
For I believe and now receive
A full and free salvation. [Refrain]

3. In Christ I live, and He doth give,
Great joy where once was sadness;
And in this way, from day to day,
My life is filled with gladness. [Refrain]

4. To all proclaim His wondrous name,
Repeat the old, old story;
Till work is done and Heaven won,
Then praise Him more in glory. [Refrain]
