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 bring my heart to Thee,
My ills I can not count,
That it may pure and cleansèd be
In Thy once opened fount.

Refrain:
I will no more delay,
Before Thy throne I fall,
And at Thy precious feet I lay
My heart, my life, to Thee.

2 I give my life to Thee,
Lord, use it as Thou wilt;
The life for which on Calvary
Thy precious blood was spilt. [Refrain]

3 If I have aught withheld,
I give it now, my Lord,
With Thee I am by love impelled
To be in sweet accord. [Refrain]
