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 Awake in Jesus—O how blest,
To be forever on His breast;
No sorrow now, and no more tears,
But peace and joy that banish fears.

Awake in Jesus,
Awake in Jesus,
To bear His likeness forevermore.

2 Awake in Jesus—sweetest frame,
To feel His breath like living flame;
And hear my loving Father say,
Now all thy tears are wiped away. [Refrain]

3 Awake in Jesus—heav’nly light,
Whose presence drives away my night;
Who bids me all His glory trace,
And see my Saviour face to face. [Refrain]
