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.

All Souls Are Mine

Representative Text

1 All souls are Mine beneath the sky;
The soul that sinneth, it shall die:
Whate’er its life, whate’er the past,
One sin unwept is death at last.

2 But if before the dying day
The sinner casts his sins away,
All his misdeeds will I forgive;
He shall not surely die, but live.

3 O house of Israel, have I
A pleasure in the souls that die,
Who life and pardon freely give,
Who only bid thee turn and live?

4 My ways are just, unequal thine;
Thine all for death, for mercy mine;
Thine is the ruin, thine the strife
That will not enter into life.

5 See God descending in thy frame
To suffer in the sinner’s name;
Thy sins to Him imputed see,
And all His righteousness to thee!

In some hymnals, the editors noted that a hymn's author is unknown to them, and so this artificial "person" entry is used to reflect that fact.
