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 night is now far spent
And day comes on apace;
The veil will soon be rent,
That hides the Savior’s face;
The clouds that now obstruct our sight
Will all be quickly put to flight.

2 Ye saints, lift up your heads,
Salvation draweth nigh;
See where the morning spreads
Its radiance through the sky;
Oh, let the sight your spirits cheer;
The Lord Himself will soon appear.

3 Though men your hope deride,
Nor will themselves believe;
Yet in His word confide,
Who never can deceive;
When Heav’n and earth shall pass away,
The saints shall see a glorious day.

4 For you the Lord intends
A bright abode on high;
The place where sorrow ends,
And naught is known but joy;
With such a hope, ye saints, rejoice;
We soon shall hear th’ archangel’s voice.
