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.

1. Have you spent a pleasant day?
Come again, come again.
Would you learn the better way?
Then come, come again.
Here you’ll find a welcome true,
Hearts that warmly beat for you;
They will tell you what do
O come, come again.
Have you spent a pleasant day?
Come again, come again.
Would you learn the better way?
Then come, come again.

2. Would you leave all sinful ways?
Come again, come again.
Would you join our cheerful lays?
Then come, come again.
We are bound for Canaan’s land,
Will you come and join our band?
We will take you by the hand,
O come, come again.
Would you leave all sinful ways?
Come again, come again.
Would you join our cheerful lays?
Then come, come again.

3. Words of comfort you shall hear,
Come again, come again;
From the Book we love so dear,
Then come, come, again;
Jesus suffered on the tree,
Jesus died for you and me,
His disciple you may be,
O come, come, again.
Words of comfort you shall hear,
Come again, come again;
From the Book we love so dear,
Then come, come, again;

4. Come on every Sabbath day,
Come again, come again;
Never, never stay away,
O come, come again;
Now improve the hours that fly,
They are gliding swiftly by,
You are not too young to die,
Then come, come again.
Come on every Sabbath day,
Come again, come again;
Never, never stay away,
O come, come again;
