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. Wake! and hear the gospel trumpet,
With a loud and earnest call,
To a feast of love and mercy,
Jesus welcomes ev'ry one.

Chorus:
Swell the song, proclaim the story,
Let the joyful echo ring;
Jesus died the world to ransom,
Jesus lives, our Priest and King.

2. Wake!! and hear the gospel, telling
What redeeming grace has done;
To a feast of love and mercy,
Jesus welcomes ev'ry one. [Chorus]

3. Wake! and hear the gospel mandate
Fight against the host of sin;
Join the ranks that now are marching,
Precious souls for Christ to win. [Chorus]

4. Wake! and hear the gospel promise,
Unto those that faithful prove,
"I will give them life eternal,
They shall dwell with me in love." [Chorus]
