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 Sing again the blessèd story,
Till with joy each heart shall glow,
Angels bright, from realms of glory,
Told to sinful man below;
While the world is quiet sleeping,
While the stars their light unfold,
Let us hear the joyful anthem
Angels sang to harps of gold.

Welcome, welcome, blessèd Jesus,
Give Thy peace to us today;
Glory, in the highest glory,
Be unto Thy name alway!

2 Glory, in the highest glory!
We would know the tidings sweet,
Hasten onward, gladly onward,
Like the shepherds Christ to greet;
He has come, the blessèd Jesus,
Born to us this happy day,
In our hearts, most holy Stranger,
We will welcome Thee alway. [Refrain]

Lizzie De Armond was a prolific writer of children's hymns, recitations and exercises. When she was twelve years old her first poem was published in the Germantown, Pa. Telegraph, however, it was not until she was a widow with eight children to support that she started writing in earnest. She wrote articles, librettos, nature stories and other works, as well as hymns.
