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 world is full of singing,
I hear it everywhere;
The flow'rs their bells are ringing
Out on the scented air:
And up above, around me,
The silent anthems roll:
The glorious Lord has found me,
There's music in my soul!

Chorus:
The blood of Christ is flowing,
Its waves around me roll;
My heart with love is glowing,
There's music in my soul!

2 My heart was fond of sighing,
With just some breaks of song,
As self was ever trying
To make its weakness strong;
But now in him confiding,
His Word has made me whole,
And e'er in Christ abiding,
There's music in my soul! [Chorus]

3 My life was full of sadness,
Of overweighting care;
But now the "oil of gladness"
Has turn'd to praise the pray'r:
And so I keep pursuing,
And pressing t'ward the goal;
But praying, waiting, doing,
There's music in my soul! [Chorus]

4 And so my heart keeps clinging
To the dear Master's Word;
And it is always singing,
Just like a springtime bird:
I know not what the harps be,
Where heav'nly anthems roll;
I know that heav'n is near me,
There's music in my soul. [Chorus]
