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.

Baptism

Father of Heav'n, we thee address

Published in 5 hymnals

Representative Text

1 Father of heaven, we thee address
(Obedience is our view)
Accept us in thy son; and bless
The work we have to do.

2 Jesus, as water well applied
Will make the body clean;
So in the fountain of thy side
Wash thou the soul from sin.

3 Celestial dove, descend from high,
And on the water brood;
And with thy quickening power apply
The water and the blood.

4 Great God, Three-One, again we call,
And our requests renew,
Accept in Christ; and bless withal
The work we've now to do.
