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.

We Homage Pay

Representative Text

1 We homage pay to Christ, our king
With grateful hearts our tribute bring;
He died upon dark Calvary,
His blood has cleansed and made me free.

3 We homage pay before Thy throne,
Rejoiced to be in truth Thine own;
E’en though Thy name we praise, adore,
Each day we long to love Thee more. [Refrain]
