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 Soon our journey will be ended,
Soon our trials will be o’er;
We shall dwell with Christ, our Savior,
On the bright eternal shore.

We shall meet our great Redeemer,
Songs of praises we shall sing,
Every soul with gladness thrilling,
In the presence of our king.

2 We shall meet our friends and loved ones
Who are waiting at the door;
There’ll be many a happy meeting,
On the bright celestial shore. [Refrain]

3 There the wicked cease from troubling,
There the weary are at rest;
Free from pain and woe and sorrow,
We shall be forever blest. [Refrain]
