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 plead Thy love, my gracious Lord,
Thy wondrous love to me;
In sin’s dark bondage I was held,
But Thou hast made me free.

2. I plead the offering of Thy blood,
Thy precious blood, for me;
For cleansing I have naught to do
But look to Calvary.

3. I plead the merit of Thy life,
Thy perfect life for me;
In what Thou wast I can behold
What I myself may be.

4. I plead, dear Savior, Thine own Word,
Thine own sure Word to me;
And need no more, for Thou hast said,
I’m all in all to thee.
