Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

1 As we journey on our pathway,
Which thro’ life’s great valley leads;
Let us scatter seeds of kindness,
Strew our path with loving deeds.

3 Let us not delay our actions,
Thoughtless for another day;
There are souls that must be rescued,
Let us help them while we may. [Refrain]
