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.

Hid away with Jesus

Representative Text

1 From all the world I’ve turned aside,
And found a fold of shelter;
In Christ I safely now abide,
Oh, praise His name forever.

Hid away, hid away,
Hid away with Jesus;
I’m washed and cleansed in Jesus’ blood,
My heart is filled with praises;
Hid away, hid away,
Hid away with Jesus;
“My life is hid with Christ in God,”
I’m hid away with Jesus.

2 A home in sect, no, not for me;
My home came down from heaven—
Jerusalem, so pure and free!
To all the door is open. [Refrain]

3 Surrounded by salvation’s wall,
A fortress strong, abiding,
The pow’rs of earth, “the gates of hell,”
Are weak and unprevailing. [Refrain]

4 Jerusalem—home from above—
The home that hath foundation;
Her children all are born of love,
And blest with full salvation. [Refrain]
