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.

1 Brightly, sweetly, toiling for the Master,
Go we forth with willing hands to do
Whatsoe’er to us He hath appointed,
Faithfully our mission to pursue.

Refrain:
Toiling for Jesus,
Joyfully we go; joyfully we go;
Toiling for Jesus,
In His vineyard here below.

2 Gladly, sweetly, we will tell the story
Of His love to mortals here below;
Christ, the brightness of the Father’s glory,
Freely here His blessing will bestow. [Refrain]

3 Meekly, meekly, toiling for the Master,
Walking faithfully the path He trod;
Leading wand’rers to the dear Redeemer,
Pointing sinners to the Lamb of God. [Refrain]
