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 Welcome, Christmas, welcome here,
Happiest season of the year;
Fires are blazing thee to great,
Families together meet;
Brothers, sisters, circle round,
Loud is gladness’ festive sound;
For our country loves to see
All her children welcome thee.

2 Welcome, Christmas, for thy voice
Calls upon us to rejoice;
Not with foolish, idle mirth,
Born and perishing on earth;
Far be such ungrateful thought,
Ours are blessings dearly bought;
Dearly bought, but freely given
By the Lord of earth and Heaven.

3 Fix we then on Christ our eye;
May we feel the Savior nigh:
May we meet around the board,
All rejoicing in the Lord:
Be the Babe of Bethlehem near;
May His love the season cheer,
And each gladdened heart and tongue
Join the angels’ Christmas song.
