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.

1 When the golden gates are opened,
And I enter in to rest,
And behold the blessed Savior,
And am folded to His breast—

That will be glory,
That will be glory,
That will be glory with my Savior King;
That will be glory,
That will be glory,
That will be glory while we shout and sing.

2 When this weary way has ended,
With its conflict sharp and long,
And the peace and joy of heaven
Fills the heart and tunes the song— [Refrain]

3 Then the promised rest and glory
In fruition shall be known,
And the long imagined splendor
Into knowledge shall have grown. [Refrain]

4 O, but ‘tis the One in glory
It will be so good to meet,
And to cast my crown before Him
Down at His beloved feet. [Refrain]

5 And forever bear the likeness
Of the Lord who died for me,
And forever join the chorus
Of the ransomed and the free. [Refrain]
