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 to me, O blessèd Spirit,
Enter Thou my heart today;
I am longing to receive Thee,
Come, and with me ever stay.

Refrain
I am waiting, I am willing,
Thine and only Thine to be;
Make my heart Thy living temple,
Come today and dwell in me.

2. Come to me in all Thy fullness,
Take possession of my soul;
Take the will I scarce can yield Thee,
Sanctify and cleanse the whole. [Refrain]

3. Loving Spirit, make me loving,
Melt my heart, and cleanse from sin,
Satisfy my restless longings,
Make me fair and pure within. [Refrain]

4. Holy Ghost, I now receive Thee!
I accept Thy mighty power;
And, by faith, I claim Thy presence
In this solemn, sacred hour.
I believe Thee! I believe Thee!
And the blessing now I claim
Of Thy fullness, gracious Spirit;
Glory to Thy holy name!
