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 redeemed of the Lord shall return
To Zion with music and song;
And daily sweet lessons of mercy will learn,
As they journey the pathway along.

With joy and with singing,
Thanksgiving and praise,
Their sweet voices ringing
In triumphant lays;
His mercy and goodness
Shall still be their song,
As homeward to Zion
They journey along.

2 The redeemed of the Lord shall return
From lands where, as captive, they sighed;
With love and devotion their spirits shall burn,
As they sing of the One crucified. [Refrain]

3 The redeemed of the Lord shall return
With singing for Zion’s bright day;
Far, far on the hilltops their glad eyes discern,
And sorrow and fear flee away. [Refrain]
