Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

1. The love of God, whose sacred bond,
Nor life nor death can sever,
Thro’ grace divine has made us one,
In Christ the Lord forever.

Then shout and sing,
Though time may bring
Its clouds of care and sorrow;
The golden ray they veil today
Will brighter shine tomorrow.

2. If one in Christ, what joy is ours,
Thro’ faith His smile beholding,
We dwell secure, our anchor sure,
His arm our souls enfolding. [Refrain]

3. Yes, one in Christ, and He in us,
The hope of endless glory,
We journey on while sweeter grows
Redemption’s grand old story. [Refrain]

4. To sinners now, we’ll gladly tell
His love so freely flowing,
And help them find the land of song
To which we now are going. [Refrain]
