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 Art thou weary, soul, of straying?
God knows, He knows it all;
Come to Him, make no delaying,
He knows it all.

Refrain:
Come with thy sorrow, come with thy care;
Come with thy burden so heavy to bear;
He knows thy sorrow, He knows it all;
Come to thy helper, oh, heed now His call.

2 Is the pathway long and dreary?
God knows, He knows it all;
He will strengthen thee when weary,
He knows it all. [Refrain]

3 Do thy cherished friends forsake thee?
God knows, He knows it all;
To His sheltering arms betake thee,
He knows it all. [Refrain]
