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. Brother! hear the Savior calling,
See the sweat-drops on His brow;
Brother! see the teardrops falling,
Harken! He is calling now.

Oh, hear the Savior’s voice,
In accents sweet and clear;
He bids your heart rejoice,
You need no longer fear.

2. Brother! see the Savior standing,
Mild compassion in His eye,
Lovingly His arms extending,
Brother! say, why will you die? [Refrain]

3. Brother! hasten thy repenting,
He is ready to forgive;
Brother! hasten thy relenting,
While He gently bids thee live. [Refrain]

4. Brother! hasten His rejoicing,
Angels wait to bless you now;
They are listening for the voicing
Of your earnest, solemn vow. [Refrain]
