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

Come, Lord Jesus, come;
Our world seeks all but You alone;
Chaos and trouble all around surround us;
We easily succumb to our fears and Satan’s evil will,
As life overtakes us ev’ry day.
How long, O Lord, must we carry on
Without Your just and righteous rule?
Spare us from the dreadful night;
Have mercy on us, Lord.
Come, Lord Jesus.

Come, Lord Jesus, come;
In Your presence may we find our rest.
May we be the shining light
In this dark old world of woe.
Come, Lord Jesus, come;
Fill us full, Lord, with Your great presence;
Let Your love, joy, peace, and truth
Through us lead all to You,
Till we all can pray this prayer, O God:
Come, Lord Jesus, come;
Come, Lord Jesus, come!
