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 Thy breath, O Lamb, as rushing wind
Descendeth from above
With tongue of fire to extend
Through vessels washed in blood.

2 As water rains o’er barren earth,

Of water, blood and breath,
Might testify a mystery
To souls undone by death.

4 That in Thee is eternal life
Thou givest all who come
By simple faith, and through Thee find
The promised Three in One.

5 ’Tis of this treasure love is sown
Whose leaves in me unfurl;
A witness so the lost might know
God’s mercy for this world.

6 Lo, God’s right hand through nature frail
Doth tend benighted ground.
Its light and life will victory hail
By fruit and golden crowns.
