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. Some sweet day my Lord will come,
Come to claim His own;
I shall meet Him face to face,
Before the Advent throne.

Refrain
Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
Like Him I shall be;
Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
For I shall see Him as He is!

2. Some sweet day this body frail,
In a moment’s space,
Shall be changed and upward caught,
And stand before His face. [Refrain]

3. Some sweet day my hand shall clasp
Those long gone before;
Press them to my heart with joy,
To part again no more. [Refrain]
