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. Disciples of all nations,
The Lord calls us to make,
Baptizing new believers
And making idols shake.
He shows us the examples,
Of how we should respond,
In Scripture stories glorious
Of servants now long gone.

2. Like Samuel in the temple,
When came the midnight call,
Obedient to his master,
He hurried down the hall.
Not fully understanding,
Ignoring any fears,
He gave courageous answer,
Speak, Lord, Your servant hears.

3. Like Gideon of Manasseh,
We think ourselves too small,
But God the Lord is with us,
A tower that cannot fall.
We need no mighty army,
No weapons made of man;
Watch God supply the helpers,
And then reveal the plan.

4. As Abraham gave Isaac,
As parents so may we
Be asked to give our children
For service full and free.
If asked, then, do not falter,
But send them on their way
To spread the wondrous tidings,
That night may turn to day.

5. As Moses stood in Egypt,
And God gave words to speak,
So will He give us boldness,
Though we be frail and weak.
His Spirit will empower us
To reach the sinner’s heart
And bring the lost to Jesus,
As destined from the start.

6. Like Samson consecrated,
If we stay true to God,
He gives us strength and power,
The Spirit’s mighty rod.
But if we fall away, then,
Our weakness will return;
So pray, stay loyal, faithful,
And God His might will lend.

7. Like Paul, there may be suffering,
And heavy the demands,
But heed not the rejection,
And hold to His commands.
Teach all that I have taught you,
As witnesses be true;
Tell all the world My Gospel,
And I will be with you.
