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. How often I wish that when Jesus was here—
When He mingled with children of men;
How gladly I’d gather with those who were near,
While His blessing He gave unto them.

Refrain
He blessed them then, He’ll bless me, too,
He’s living now in glory, and He’ll bless me, too.

2. But when I remember how homeless and sad
He wandered that weary land o’er,
It leads me to singing, rejoice and be glad,
He liveth above evermore. [Refrain]

3. I’ll try to be faithful and patient and true,
And lovingly seek Him in prayer;
He kindly will help me my duty to do,
Until His sweet home I shall share. [Refrain]
