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 joy among the angels,
When the children seek the fold;
How they tune their harps and voices,
Gathered ’round the gates of gold.

Refrain
Then to Jesus come away;
Hear Him kindly, gently say,
Suffer all the little children,
Bid them come to Me today.

2. There is joy among the angels,
When a soul by sin oppressed,
To the Savior turns repenting,
And receives the promised rest. [Refrain]

3. There is joy among the angels,
As they bear the news to Heaven,
Of a child on earth rejoicing,
O’er the bliss of sins forgiven. [Refrain]
