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.

3580. Lay It Down

1. Oh, come, sinner, come! ’tis mercy’s call;
Here at Jesus’ feet!
Oh come, and, repenting, lay thy all
Down at Jesus’ feet!

Oh, lay it down! lay it down!
Lay thy weary burden down!
Oh, lay it down! lay it down,
Down at Jesus’ feet!

2. Oh come, and, believing, seek thy rest
Here at Jesus’ feet!
Thy heart, with its heavy weight oppressed,
Lay at Jesus’ feet! [Refrain]

3. Oh come, where thy faith can make thee whole,
Here at Jesus’ feet!
Oh come, and thy weary, troubled soul
Lay at Jesus’ feet! [Refrain]

4. Oh come! bless the Lord, there’s room for thee,
Here at Jesus’ feet!
Thy burden of guilt, whate’er it be,
Lay at Jesus feet! [Refrain]
