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 see my Savior with thorn-crowned head,
Bearing His cross for me;
Thorn-pierced His brow, as by soldiers led,
Bearing His cross for me.

Refrain:
Bearing His cross for me,
Bearing His cross for me,
Wonderful Savior, what anguish He bore,
Bearing His cross for me.

2 I see Him pass thru the city gate,
Bearing His cross for me;
On midst the taunts and the people’s hate,
Bearing His cross for me. [Refrain]

3 I see Him burdened with this world’s sin,
Bearing His cross for me;
Willing to suffer, all hearts to win,
Bearing His cross for me. [Refrain]

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.
