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.

To God Whose Mercy Knows No Bounds

Representative Text

1 God whose mercy knows no bounds,
we gratefully direct our sounds,
O praise him, alleluia!
Within this space and then beyond
his presence stirs us to respond,

Alleluia, alleluia,
Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia!

2 The music that restores and heals
the Source of harmony reveals -
O praise him, alleluia!

3 We thank you with uplifted voice,
this word of praise our joyful choice:
Alleluia, alleluia!
O gracious Spirit, may our song
to you eternally belong! [Refrain]
