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.

1 Thanks be to God for the vict’ry over sin;
Thanks for His Word and the teaching therein;
Thanks for His Son who was given to proclaim
Tidings of good, and the earth to reclaim.

Chorus:
Sing, Sing,
Sing for the vict’ry over sin;
Sing a glad hosanna,
Sing a glad hosanna!
Hosanna! hosanna! hosanna!

2 Thanks for the gift of His loved, His only Son;
Thanks for the work which on earth He begun;
Thanks for the peace which it brings unto the soul,
Working for Jesus, His love to unfold. [Chorus]

3 Thanks for redemption and purchase by His blood;
Thanks for the love He has taught in His Word;
Thanks for His Spirit, for evermore to reign,
Peace on the earth, and good will unto men. [Chorus]
