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 am coming, gentle Savior,
Take me firmly by the hand;
Keep me in the narrow pathway,
Leading to the heavenly land;
For my feet have oft been straying
In forbidden paths of sin,
And from Thee my heart has wandered;
Make me, keep me pure within.

2 I am coming, gentle Savior,
Coming quickly unto Thee;
For I hear Thy sweet voice calling,
Oh, poor sinner, come to Me!
And I know that Thou art mighty,
Thou canst wash me free from sin;
Take my heart, O Lord, and cleanse it,
And forever dwell within.

3 I am coming, gentle Savior,
I have naught but love to bring,
Save a heart both weak and sinful,
But to Thee, my all, I cling;
Naught to bring, but Thou hast called me,
Thy great love is all my plea,
All the world I leave behind me,
And to Thy dear arms I flee.
