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 have heard the welcome story
Of redemption, full and free;
I have wandered, O my Father,
But Thy child I long to be.

Refrain
I am coming home to Thee,
Coming home to Thee;
I have heard the invitation,
And I’m coming home to Thee,
I am coming home to Thee,
Coming home to Thee;
I have heard the invitation,
And I’m coming home to Thee.

2. I have heard the welcome story
And it makes my heart rejoice;
I have heard the gentle pleading
Of the Spirit’s warning voice.[Refrain]

3. I am coming, gladly coming,
For I can no longer stay
From Thy loving arms of mercy,
And Thy precious fold, away. [Refrain]
