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 Does the tempter seek your soul?
Do your doubts perplex your mind?
God still holds the world’s control,
Happiness in Him you’ll find.

The golden days are coming by and by,
The golden days are coming by and by,
In our Father’s home above,
We shall glory in His love,
The golden days are coming by and by.

2 Tho’ your load is heavy now;
Don’t give up or be cast down;
God has promised, and He’s true,
Every cross will mean a crown. [Refrain]

3 Jesus is a mighty king,
Every foe will vanquished be;
We shall find our heart’s desire
Thro’ the Man of Galilee. [Refrain]

4 Sin some day will be unknown,
Tears of pain and sorrow o’er;
Those we’ve “loved and lost awhile,”
We shall meet to part no more. [Refrain]
