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 waiting at the portal;
Do not pass Me by!
Tho’ the cares of life are pressing,
Linger to receive a blessing,
Ere the night draws nigh.

Refrain:
At the portal, I am waiting,
I am waiting still for thee;
At the portal I am waiting,
Then come, O come to Me.

2 I am waiting at the portal;
Do I wait in vain?
Seeking only earthly pleasures
And rejecting heav’nly treasures
Do not bring thee gain. [Refrain]

3 I am waiting at the portal,
Patiently I wait;
In My Father’s name receiving
All who come to Me believing,
Ere it be too late. [Refrain]
