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 Blessed Jesus, we implore Thee,
Let us, cleansed and purified,
Walk in grace and truth before Thee
And in Thee by faith abide,
Sanctified, sanctified
Both in body and in mind.

2 Unto us Thy Name’s sweet savor
Be as ointment poured forth;
In Thine eyes may we find favor,
Though depraved and void of worth,
While Thy banner, while Thy banner
Over us is love Divine.

3 Now the conflict is decided,
We count all things else but loss;
What with Thee our hearts divided
Now is nailed to Thy Cross;
We will glory, we will glory
In the Cross of Christ alone.

4 We will dwell on Calvary’s mountain,
Where the flocks of Zion feed,
Oft resort unto the fountain,
Opened when the Lord did bleed,
Thence deriving, Thence deriving
Grace, and life, and holiness.
