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 worship Thee, O Holy Ghost.
I love to worship Thee.
My risen Lord for aye were lost
But for Thy company.

2 I worship Thee, O Holy Ghost.
I love to worship Thee.
I grieved Thee long, alas! Thou knos'st
It grieves me bitterly.

3 I worship Thee, O Holy Ghost.
I love to worship Thee.
Thy patient love, at what a cost.
At last it conquered me!

4 I worship Thee, O Holy Ghost.
I love to worship Thee.
With Thee each day is Pentecost,
Each night Nativity.
