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 wandered far away,
Savior, from Thy path astray;
Like a weary child I come,
Seeking rest and peace in Thee.

I will follow Thee, yes, I will follow Thee,
Wheresoe’er Thou leadest I will go;
I will follow Thee, yes, I will follow Thee,
Follow where Thou leadest me.

2 Teach me all Thy grace to know,
As the thorny way I go,
Help me curb my stubborn will,
Yielding gently unto Thee. [Refrain]

3 There’s no joy apart from Thee,
Long I sought it faithfully;
Now I give myself and all,
Give up all and follow Thee. [Refrain]
