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 promised Star appeareth,
The Dayspring from above;
Our souls with light it cheereth,
The light of peace and love.
Christ, of a virgin born,
With His celestial brightness
Hath turned our night to morn.

2 O Lord, how condescending,
How mild Thy coming now!
But soon, the mountains rending,
Thy voice the heav’ns shall bow.
Thou wilt appear again
Upon a throne of glory,
With endless power to reign.

3 Lord, let us now receive Thee
Within the willing heart,
And never may we grieve Thee
Nor tempt Thee to depart.
Thy childlike spirit give
To us, beloved Redeemer,
And still within us live.
