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, who late was dead,
Now lives; then haste away,
And through the world the tidings spread,
The Lord is ris’n today.

2 While foes are filled with fear;
His joyful friends may say,
What glorious news is this we hear?
The Lord is ris’n today.

3 His triumph is complete,
Let all His people say;
And let ten thousand tongues repeat,
The Lord is ris’n today.

4 Let all His people sing,
For well His people may;
The theme is sweet; of hope the spring,
The Lord is ris’n today.

5 On Him our souls rely,
Desponding thoughts away;
We know ’tis true, and sing with joy,
The Lord is ris’n today.
