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. I always meet my Savior
Upon some promise sweet,
And there I listen to what He may say;
He life eternal gives me,
For Jesus ever loves me,
He is coming by the promise way today.

He is coming by the promise way,
Coming by the promise way,
Coming by the promise way today;
My heart goes out to meet Him,
With joy and gladness greet Him,
He is coming by the promise way today.

2. I tell Him all my troubles,
It gives my soul relief,
His counsels I would ever then obey;
With grace He doth supply me,
And ever standeth by me,
He is coming by the promise way today. [Refrain]

3. He fits me for His service,
With life and love complete,
I yield unto His own and precious way;
To work for Jesus ever,
Shall be my best endeavor,
For He cometh by the promise way today. [Refrain]

4. To do His will—this only
Shall be my one desire,
In oneness with my Savior would I stay;
Thus yoked with Him, Christ Jesus,
Work jointly with my Savior,
I shall meet Him by the promise way today. [Refrain]
