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.

Published in 1 hymnal

Representative Text

Yo quiero ser, Señor amante,
como el barro en manos del al farrero,
toma mi vida y hazla de nuevo,
yo quiero ser, yo quiero ser
un vaso nuevo.

I want to be, my loving Savior,
like the clay in the potter's hands,
take my life and remold me,
I want to be, I want to be
a brand new vessel.
