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.

The sky tells the glory of God

The sky tells the glory of God

Tune: [The sky tells the glory of God]
Published in 2 hymnals

Representative Text

The sky tells the glory of God,
tells the genius of God's work.

The sky tells the glory of God,
tells the genius of God's work.
Day carries the news to day,
night brings the mesage to night, [Response]

without a word, without a sound,
without a voice being heard,
and yet their message fills the world,
their news reaches its rim. [Responsse]

There God has pitched a tent
for the sun to rest and rise renewed
like a bridegroom rising from bed,
an athlete eager to run a race. [Response]

It springs from the edge of the earth,
runs a course across the sky
to win the race at heaven's end.
Nothing on earth escaped its heat. [Response]
