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.

Something Which is Known

Something which is known

Tune: [Something which is known]
Published in 1 hymnal

Representative Text

1 Something which is known to have been from the beginning:
this we have heard and seen with our own eyes;
something we have touched and have carefully watched:
the Word who is life, this we share with you.

Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia, alleluia!

2 This is the life of our God so gracious,
Word become flesh: there is no greater wonder.
All that we have witnessed became new vision:
this our hope for you, alive in God's own spirit. [Refrain]

3 He it is in whom we have found the light of truth,
source of our hope, abiding gift of God's love.
Through that love we pass and are born in life unending:
Jesus, our Lord, the fullness of our joy. [Refrain]
