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 Hear the pennies dropping!
Listen while they fall;
Ev'ry one for Jesus,
He will get them all,

Dropping, dropping, dropping, dropping;
Hear the pennies fall!
Ev'ry one for Jesus,
He will get them all.

2 Dropping, dropping ever.
From each little hand;
'Tis our gift to Jesus,
From his little band. [Refrain]

3 Now, while we are little.
Pennies are are store;
But, when we are older,
Lord, we'll give thee more. [Refrain]

4 Tho, we've little money.
We can give him love;
He will own our off'ring,
Smiling from above. [Refrain]
