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 King of Glory we proclaim

The King of Glory we proclaim

Author: James Montgomery
Published in 1 hymnal

Representative Text

The King of Glory we proclaim--
Who is the King of Glory? He
To seek and save the lost who came,
The Jew, the Gentile, bond and free.

Heralds through every clime we send,
His great salvation to make known:
The Church's Head, the Sinner's Friend,

The Father's gift--from pole to pole--
Earth's utmost bound, to time's last age.

283
Him shall all tongues confess, all knees
Shall bow before that mercy-seat,
Love reconcile all enemies,
Or wrath subdue beneath His feet.

A year of Jubilee we hail!
Since we in faith this work began
It must go on: it cannot fail
While we are true to God and man.

So, Father, glorify Thy Son,
So Thou in Him be glorified,
Till all the straying sheep are won,
For whom the Lord their Shepherd died.
