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.

Tune Information

Composer: Terrye Coelho (1972)

Incipit: 11221 71331 13231
Key: F Major
Copyright: © Marantha! Music/Word Music (UK)


The tune title MARANATHA is an Aramaic expression meaning "Come, O Lord!" or "Our Lord has come." "Maranatha!" became an acclamation in the early church (see 1 Cor. 16:22; Rev. 22:20) and is also part of the name of the Christian music publisher Maranatha! Music, which began as a ministry of Calvary Chapel. Sing this hymn in three stanzas, or preferably as a three-part round. Use very light registration, just strong enough to provide a steady tempo, and maintain the pulse between stanzas. Guitars are appropriate, with perhaps flute or other melody instruments improvising a descant by playing the alto or tenor part an octave higher. Because the song is so simple, people can divide into groups to sing it as a round; to avoid the distraction of spoken directions, the song leader can simply gesture to signal when each group should begin. Try singing stanza 1 together; then continue with stanzas 2 and 3 in a round. --Psalter Hymnal Handbook, 1988
