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 love God’s Word so precious,
It tells of His love for me,
It tells how Jesus suffered,
And died on Calvary.

Refrain
I will hide God’s Word in my heart each day,
That against Him I might not sin;
It will blessing bring, make the joy-bells ring,
If I hide God’s Word in my heart.

2. I love God’s Word of pardon,
It tells me of sins forgiv’n;
It brings sweet peace ne’er ending,
And hope on the joys of Heav’n. [Refrain]

3. I love God’s Word victorious,
It tells of the conquering Lord,
Who rose from death triumphant,
According to God’s own Word. [Refrain]

4. I love God’s Word of promise,
Of Him who shall come again,
Of that glad day when Jesus
As king of the earth shall reign. [Refrain]

Author: Robert Harkness

After attending a revival meeting by Reuben Torrey and Charles M. Alexander, Harkness became Alexander’s pianist. He came to Christ shortly thereafter (on a bicycle, he said), and made several round the world tours with Torrey and Alexander. Harkness was especially well known for his program The Music of the Cross, and as the author of correspondence courses in hymn playing. He wrote over 2,000 hymns and Gospel songs in his lifetime.
