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 Me," Says Jesus

"Come to me," says Jesus

Representative Text

1 'Come to me', says Jesus,
'all who are distressed;
take my yoke upon you,
I will give you rest.

2 I am meek and humble,
find, with me, release
from false airs and graces;
come, and be at peace.'

3 Hear the call of Jesus,
come, be deeply blessed;
his the invitation,
you the honoured guest.

4 Here, where bread is broken,
here, where wine is poured,
thankfully receive him,
find your faith restored.

5 Pardon, feed and heal us,
humble, courteous Lord,
gracious host, for ever
honoured and adored.
