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 puts on its robe of spring,
To greet the newly risen Lord;
Fair forest flowers and lilies fling
Their sweets upon the grassy sward.

O, fair and rare, they fitly say
That Christ, our Lord, is risen today;
O, fair and rare, they fitly say
That Christ, our Lord, is risen today;

2 Take jasmine pure and roses white,
Wreathe aisle and altar with their snow;
Fill all the day with bloom and light
And make a heaven here below. [Refrain]

3 O risen Savior, holy Lord!
Thy glorious life we now behold;
In every heart be Thou adored,
While in our hymns Thy praise is told. [Refrain]
