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.

1. I have a friend whose life is sweet to me,
I’m happy in Jesus today;
His blood doth keep me clean and make me free,
I’m happy in Jesus today.

Refrain
I’m happy in Jesus today,
I’m happy in Jesus today;
For Jesus goes with me all the way,
I’m happy in Jesus today.

2. He bore my burdens all upon the tree,
I’m happy in Jesus today;
His precious life He gave to pardon me,
I’m happy in Jesus today. [Refrain]

3. His grace to me grows sweeter every day,
I’m happy in Jesus today;
It helps to keep me from the evil way,
I’m happy in Jesus today. [Refrain]
