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 When the world is radiant, rich with summer hours,
Wood and field and garden gemmed with brightest flowers;
When the wheat is golden, gleaming in the sun,
And the scythe and sickle harvest have begun.

May our thoughts turn often, in our gratitude,
To the Lord of harvest— giver of all good.
He is Lord of harvest, and to Him we raise
Songs of sweetest measure, thankful songs of praise.

2 He who in the winter clad the ground with snow,
He who lit the springtime, caused the seed to grow;
He who sent the showers, and the dew at morn,
Then the sunny hours, ripening fruit and corn— [Refrain]
