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.

The God Of Might Dispels The Night

Representative Text

1 The God of might dispels the night,
And sends the risen Son,
To give us light, put sin to flight,
The power of death undone.
The souls who put their trust in Him

His love has conquered powers grim
And showed His power to save.

2 The Light of the world has calmed our strife,
Has banished death’s dark gloom;
Has given resurrection life,
And hope beyond the tomb.
Live in the light and trust your Lord,
A tower and fortress sure,
Because He died, we know we live,
While Heaven and earth endure.
