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.

11202. O Spirit, Come

1 O Spirit, come, dispel each cloud of sadness;
Come in Thy power, while here we meet to pray;
Tune Thou our tongues, and may our song of gladness
Praise Him who made and blessed this holy day.

2 O Spirit, come, and in our hearts abiding,
Teach us the right, that we may walk therein;
Show us the truth, and there our footsteps guiding,
So shall we shun the rugged path of sin.

3 O Spirit, come, we long for Thy appearing,
Long for Thy light upon our pilgrim way;
Long for Thy love so tender, true and cheering;
O Spirit, come, and fill our souls today.
