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 Savior is risen for you and for me,
The Savior who suffered on Calvary’s tree;
Rejoice, little children, rejoice in His love,
The wonderful Savior who came from above.

Rejoice, little children, rejoice in His love,
The wonderful Savior who came from above.

2 The Savior is risen that we may arise,
From sin’s gloomy prison, and dwell in the skies;
Rejoice in the light that this glad Easter brings,
Rejoice in the love of the great King of kings. [Refrain]

3 The Savior is risen for one and for all,
The Savior is risen for great and for small;
With Father and Spirit He reigns evermore,
One God in three Persons to love and adore. [Refrain]
