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 Tell me o’er and o’er again,
While the bells are ringing;
Tell me of the King of men,
Earth’s redemption bringing;
Tell me of the town of old,
Where a wondrous star of gold
Of the Savior’s coming told;
Tell me of the King.

Refrain:
Tell the story of the King,
Let the theme triumphant ring,
He who came our peace to bring,
Tell me of the King.

2 Tell me of the gilded rocks
Lit with sudden glory;
Tell me of the dreaming flocks
And the Christmas story;
Tell me o’er and o’er again,
How the watching shepherd men
Saw the star from vale and glen;
Tell me of the King. [Refrain]

3 Tell me how the angels sang
Joy to every nation;
Tell me how the chorus rang
Over all creation;
Tell, oh, tell the wondrous theme
Of the King of kings supreme,
Born the people to redeem;
Tell me of the King. [Refrain]
