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 praise the Lord that one like me
For mercy may to Jesus flee,
He says that whosoever will
May seek and find salvation still.

Refrain:
My Saviour’s promise faileth never;
He counts me in the Whosoever.
My Saviour’s promise faileth never;
He counts me in the Whosoever.

2 I was to sin a wretched slave,
But Jesus died my soul to save;
He says that whosoever will
May seek and find salvation still. [Refrain]

3 I look by faith and see this word,
Stamped with the blood of Christ my Lord,
He says that whosoever will
May seek and find salvation still. [Refrain]

4 I now believe he saves my soul,
His precious blood hath made me whole;
He says that whosoever will
May seek and find salvation still. [Refrain]
