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. We shall hear the angels singing,
When we reach the golden shore;
Loud their anthems will be ringing,
When we reach the golden shore;
Jesus there will rise to meet us,
With sweet loving words He’ll greet us,
And beside Him He will seat us,
When we reach the golden shore.

2. We shall cast our crowns before Him,
When we reach the golden shore;
And with shining hosts adore Him,
When we reach the golden shore;
Every land and every nation,
All made free thro’ His salvation,
Will join in the acclamation,
When we reach the golden shore.
