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 Far away beyond the deep,
On the winds that never sleep,
Precious souls in heathen lands
Reach to us their pleading hands.

Refrain:
Hear the cry, O send the light,
You whose homes are ward and bright;
Send the light our hearts to cheer,
Leave us not to perish here.

2 O’er the wild and heaving main
Shall their cry be heard again;
Let our hearts with pity glow,
And our tears in sorrow flow. [Refrain]

3 Haste the word of truth to bear
On the wings of faith and prayer;
Haste the bread of life to break
For the dear Redeemer’s sake. [Refrain]
