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.

God Shall Wipe All the Tears Away

Representative Text

1 Tho' the clouds may hover o'er us,
There's a bright and golden ray,
It's the promise that in heaven
God shall wipe all tears away.

Refrain:
When we reach that blessed homeland,
Where 'tis everlasting day,
On that bright eternal morning
God shall wipe all tears away.

2 No more sorrow, no more weeping,
Peace and joy shall hold full sway,
For beside life's crystal river
God shall wipe all tears away. [Refrain]

3 Ev'ry care will be forgotten,
All our burdens we shall lay,
Safe within the walls of jasper
God shall wipe all tears away. [Refrain]

4 O, the joy of meeting Jesus,
Mortal tongue cannot portray,
But we know when we behold Him
God shall wipe all tears away. [Refrain]
