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.

Crowds followed Yesu

Crowds followed Yesu to the hills

Published in 1 hymnal

Representative Text

1 Crowds followed Yesu to the hills,
his deeds they did recall.
At evening Yesu asked his friends,
"How can we feed them all?"

2 "These loaves and fish are all we have,
enough for just a few.
So send them off to beg or buy,
there's nothing we can do."

3 Bur Yesu so arranged the crowds
that everyone took part.
He shared with them God's way of love
and opened every heart.

4 By miracle there was enough,
the food for all was there,
when Yesu bound them all as one,
and taught them how to share.

5 We're all to blame that many starve
and more are left to die.
In Christ we're called to heal the world
and hungry satisfy.

6 With Yesu's lead, we'll learn to share,
and build our world anew.
Its wealth and food will be for all,
and not or just a few.
