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 Come and sit at Jesus’ feet,
Come and learn of him;
Words of comfort, pure and sweet,
Come and learn of him.

Learn of him, O toil-oppressed;
Lean thy head upon his breast;
He will give thee perfect rest,—
Come and learn of him

2 Take his yoke upon thee now,
Come and learn of him;
Ask, and he will teach thee how,
Come and learn of him. [Refrain]

3 How to trust for ev’ry day,
Come and learn of him;
How to watch, as well as pray,
Come and learn of him. [Refrain]

4 For his glory wouldst thou live?
Come and learn of him;
He the grace will freely give,
Come and learn of him. [Refrain]
