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. Father, whose love we have wronged by transgression
Christ, who wast nailed for our sins on the tree,
Spirit, who givest the grace of repentance;
Hear us, we pray Thee, good Lord.

2. Jesu, adorable Savior of sinners,
Author of penitence, Hope of our souls,
Plentiful Fountain of grace and compassion;
Hear us, we pray Thee, good Lord.

3. Thou who didst empty Thyself of Thy glory,
Thou who Thy parents on earth didst obey,
Thou who for our sake enduredst temptation,
Hear us, we pray Thee, good Lord.

4. Thou who hast shown us the love of the Father,
Meeting with mercy the prodigal son,
Sonship and home to the lost one restoring,
Hear us, we pray Thee, good Lord.

5. Jesu, who once by the well to the sinner
Clearly the sins of her heart did reveal,
Leading her gently to faith and repentance,
Hear us, we pray Thee, good Lord.

6. Thou who didst enter the house of Zaccheus,
Blessing his faith and accepting his love,
When for wrongdoing he made restitution,
Hear us, we pray Thee, good Lord.

7. Christ, with the Twelve the last Passover keeping,
Ere on the cross the true Lamb should be slain,
Sacrifice offered for all and for ever,
Hear us, we pray Thee, good Lord.

8. Jesu, alone with the blood-sweat upon Thee,
Jesu, in agony bowed to the earth,
Jesu, Thy will to the Father resigning,
Hear us, we pray Thee, good Lord.

9. Jesu, from Annas to Caiaphas hurried,
Blindfolded, stricken, and falsely accused,
Rudely blasphemed, and declared a blasphemer,
Hear us, we pray Thee, good Lord.

10. Jesu, denied by Thine eager Apostle,
Whom with a look Thou didst straightway recall,
Moving him straightway to tears and contrition;
Hear us, we pray Thee, good Lord.

11. Thou who wast wounded to heal our transgression,
Lifted on high to draw all men to Thee,
There on the cross in Thy majesty reigning,
Hear us, we pray Thee, good Lord.

12. That Thou wouldst draw us to heartfelt contrition,
That Thou wouldst help us our sins to confess,
That Thou wouldst grant us the grace of amendment,
Hear us, we pray Thee, good Lord.

13. That we may bring forth works meet for repentance,
That we give place to the devil no more,
That Thou wouldst lead us to sure perseverance,
Hear us, we pray Thee, good Lord.
