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, sweet dawning of the morn,
That saw our Savior rise;
Welcome the glorious, sacred light,
That burst yon eastern skies.
Serene and calm at early dawn,
While nature breathed repose,
Ere Mary sought that lonely tomb,
Our dear Redeemer rose.

Refrain
He rose, He rose, He rose!
Triumphant over His foes!

2. We’ll join with angels in their song,
Loud hallelujahs sing;
Come one and all, His praise prolong,
Till Heav’n with echoes ring.
We magnify a risen Lord,
Though once for sinners slain;
He bore our sorrows and our cares,
Yet lives in Heaven again. [Refrain]

3. Sing victory, victory over death,
Our worst and latest foe;
Our loving Savior broke the bars,
That He His power might show.
List! ye redeemed ones, hear the words,
And cease, ye weeping eyes;
First, on the resurrection morn,
The dead in Christ shall rise. [Refrain]
