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, for the feast is spread,
hark to the call:
come to the Living Bread
offered to all.
Come to his house of wine,
low on his breast recline,
all that he has is thine;
come, sinner, come.

2 Come where the fountain flows,
river of life;
healing for all thy woes,
doubting, and strife.
Millions have been supplied,
no one was e'er denied,
come to the crimson tide;
come, sinner, come.

3 Come to the throne of grace,
boldly draw near;
he who would win the race
must tarry here.
Whate'er thy want may be,
here is the grace for thee,
Jesus thine only plea;
come, Christian, come.
