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 The angel rolled the stone away!
The angel rolled the stone away!
'Twas on a bright and shine day,
When the trumpet began to play,
The angel rolled the stone away!

2 My Jesus spurned that dreadful tomb!
My Jesus spurned that dreadful tomb!
'Twas on a bright and shine day,
When the trumpet began to play,
My Jesus spurned that dreadful tomb!

3 My Lord will come again for me!
My Lord will come again for me!
And on a bright and shine day,
When the trumpet began to play,
My Lord will come again for me.
