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 Lord doth in His kingdom come;
Exalt and magnify His name;
Throw open heart and gate to Him,
And bring Him in with loud acclaim.

2 He comes to His inheritance,
Then praise and bless His royal name,
And open now your heart to Him,
And bring Him in with loud acclaim.

3 He brings the treasures of His grace,
He will our guilt and fear remove,
Will form us in His image fair,
Abounding in all good and love.

4 Admit Him in thy soul and heart,
That He may reign unrivaled there;
Cast our His every enemy,
Thy heart for His abode prepare.
