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 All my life the Lord hath led me;
All my life his loving care
'Midst the wilderness hath fed me;
Still his hands my ways prepare.

O the debt of love I owe him,
Debt no gold can e'er repay;
If I can but see and know him,
He my sin will wash away.

2 O how tenderly he brought me
O'er the toilsome, dangerous way;
With his own dear blood he bought me;
How can I his love repay? [Refrain]

3 As I am, O Savior, take me!
Though a sinner, save me, Lord!
Cleanse my soul from sin, and make me
Pure in spirit by thy word. [Refrain]
