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, day of sweet repose!
Blessèd be thy sacred hours!
We would trust the One who knows
All our weak and failing powers.

2. Welcome, day in Eden born!
Holy rest for sinless man!
Like the dawning of fair morn
Come thy hours to us again.

3. Welcome, day blessed by our Lord!
Toil shall cease and anxious care,
Day commanded by His Word,
Day for song and praise and prayer.

4. Welcome, day our Savior kept!
Keeping, wrought our righteousness,
Day God bids us ne’er forget,
Day of days His name to bless.
