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.

From house to house

Representative Text

1 Go, ye workers in God’s vineyard,
Go, ye heralds of the cross;
Go, invite the lost to Jesus,
Go, you will not suffer loss.
Go, for God will give you courage,
Go, you will not be alone;
Go, His arm will be around you,
Go, for Him, to every home.

2 You may meet with with many trials,
You may sometimes meet rebuff;
You may find the way unpleasant,
You must pray for grace enough.
You must work and do the bidding—
You have His command to Go;
You must never be discouraged,
You will overcome the foe.

3 Grant us, Lord, Thy heav’nly blessing,
Give your grace from up above;
House to house, for visitation,
In Thy name we’ll go in love.
Brothers, sisters, friends and neighbors,
Pastors, teachers, students, all,
Are united in this service,
On us richest blessings fall.
