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.

1 Dear Saviour, ere we part,
We lift our hearts to Thee,
In gratitude and praise
For blessings full and free.

2 Go with us to our homes,
Watch o’er and keep us there,
And make us one and all
The children of Thy care.
