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 There is a land where dwellers sweetly rest,
Beyond the discord of earth's stormy years;
Where heartaches never more shall vex the breast,
And God's own hand shall wipe away all tears.

2 A better land where mortals reap in joy
The harvest sown in disappointment here;
Where love shall claim its own, nor fears annoy--
Where there is perfect love without a fear.

3 A joyous land, with music on the air,
Where angel voices swell the gladsome strain;
Bright gleams life's river, softly flowing, fair;
There is no death in all that wide domain.
