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.

Come to Jesus, Come Today

Representative Text

1 Come to Jesus, come today,
He will take your sins away;
Come, O come, why do you wait?
Come, while open is the gate.

Heed the gentle, loving call,
Taking Jesus as your all.
Then, O then you’ll happy be,
For His glory you shall see.

2 He is knocking at your heart,
Heed this call ere He depart;
Ask of Him His pardoning grace;
Find in Him a hiding place. [Refrain]

3 Bring your guilt to Him with grief,
He will give you quick relief;
Jesus wept to see your state,
Come, or you may be too late. [Refrain]

4 Cast on Him your every care;
All your sorrows He will share;
He your burdens all will take,
And will never thee forsake. [Refrain]
