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.

Published in 4 hymnals

Author: Dave Richards

Dave Richards wrote this song whilst their House Church was worshipping one night in 1975. It became an anthem throughout the New Church Movement in UK. Dave pastored The Church at Merryfield House in Witney near Oxford at that time, then helped plant other new Churches, until becoming the Senior Pastor of Basingstoke Community Church in 1981, from where he exercised an apostolic ministry into Africa,North America, India, Europe and the Nordic Regions. He and the churches he still serves as a Spiritual Father, have lived out this song amongst the nations, and are still doing that today. Dave Richards (via email) Go to person page >
