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

Another day, a day of grace
Is given us from on high;
The sun rejoicing runs his race
Of glory round the sky.

We love to hail him on the way,
With healing in his wings,
For every time he brings a day,
A day of grace he brings;--

Of grace to weary ones, who sleep
As homeless Jacob slept;
Of grace to penitents, who weep
As fallen Peter wept;--

Grace, such as humble Mary moved
To choose the better part,
Saul's slaughter-breathing zeal reproved,
And open'd Lydia's heart.

Such grace be ours, howe'er the past
Have well or ill been spent;
To-day,--since this may be our last,--
To-day let us repent.

Now young and old, now great and small,
Seek we our Saviour's face,
That we henceforth this day may call
A day indeed of grace.
