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 At set of sun when life is o’er,
And I on earth no longer dwell,
I shall not wander any more,
But be with Christ where all is well.

Refrain:
O Heav’n so bright, beyond life’s shore;
Some glad sweet day, I’m going o’er
To be at rest from sin’s despair,
And dwell forever in God’s care!

2 I wonder, as on faith I lean,
If I shall be a wretch undone,
And what eternity will mean,
When I must stand before God’s Son. [Refrain]

3 The Gospel light has led me through
The miry clay of shame and sin;
I’ll run my race with courage new,
Until a crown of life I win. [Refrain]
