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’s a glorious hope thrilling Christian souls today,
And our hearts beat high as in faith we watch and pray,
Looking unto Him who shall call His own away
To the glory over yonder.

In the glory over yonder,
We shall meet Him by and by,
We shall greet Him in the sky;
Praising Him in love and wonder,
In the glory over yonder.

2. As we wait for Him, daily watching and in prayer,
What a peace He gives, what a joy beyond compare;
Just a foretaste here of the rapture we will share
In the glory over yonder. [Refrain]

3. Is your heart at rest? Have you given all to God?
Are you fully cleansed in the Savior’s precious blood?
Are you walking now in the path that Jesus trod
To the glory over yonder? [Refrain]
