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. Blest Savior, near to Thee,
Who art so dear to me,
Gladly I tread;
I love to walk beside
So kind and true a Guide
For ne’er can ill betide
Those by Thee led.

2. Lead me where Thou wilt lead,
Thy hungering flock to feed
Gladly I’ll haste;
I would not idle be
While still, afar from Thee,
I can one wanderer see
On earth’s drear waste.

3. Send me where Thou wilt send,
To foe or loving friend
Gladly I’ll go;
No harm have I to fear
Since Thou art ever near,
Thy smile my way shall cheer
Life’s journey through.
