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.

48. Are You Fit for the Kingdom

1 Are you fit for the kingdom,
Is your heart all right?
Should He call you tomorrow,
Could you bear His sight?
Oh be sure you are ready,
‘Twere a fearful plight,
To be called to the kingdom,
And your heart not right.

Chorus:
Are you fit for the kingdom,
For the golden crown,
With the ransomed to mingle
And with them sit down!
Oh then haste to be ready,
Make no more delay,
Lo, the Saviour is calling
“Be prepared today!”

2 Are you fit for the kingdom,
Are you free from sin,
Are you washed in the fountain,
Are you clean within?
Are you sure of your pardon,
Are your garments white,
Are you fit for the kingdom
Is your heart all right? [Chorus]

3 Are you fit for the kingdom,
Is it wise to wait?
He may call you tomorrow,
It may be too late!
Oh be sure you are ready,
Enter in before
The Good Master hath risen
And hath shut the door! [Chorus]
