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 Do something for Jesus, believer,
Some talent was given to you;
Whatever in life is your station,
There’s something or other to do.

Do something for Jesus,
Do something for Jesus,
Oh, work in His vineyard, I pray;
Bring one to believe Him,
To love and receive Him,
Do something for Jesus today.

2 Why stand you so idle and listless?
Oh, rouse you, dear Christian, take heed;
The weak and the erring are near you,
The sick and the helpless in need. [Refrain]

3 The harvest so swiftly is passing,
There’s work for the feeble and strong;
And following after the Savior,
There’s work for the old and the young. [Refrain]
