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 Coming in the name of Jesus,
Grace we seek with one accord,
Not to do the things that please us,
But the things that please our Lord.
Following Him is our endeavor,
To our promise keeping true;
Striving still to do whatever
He would like to have us do.

2 Daily seeking strength and guiding,
Faithful to the Church we love,
In the life of trust abiding,
Till we share the life above;
We will leave the Savior never,
We would pledge ourselves anew;
We will strive to do whatever
He would like to have us do.

3 In our happy meeting hour
We would always claim a share,
Owning Jesus’ love and power,
In a word, a song, a prayer.
Be our help, dear Lord, forever;
Nerve our courage, bring us thro’,
Till we love to do whatever
Thou wouldst like to have us do.
