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. If there is abundance of joy in your heart,
Made bright by the light from above,
If Jesus has bidden your sorrows depart,
Keep telling the story of love.

Refrain
Keep telling, keep telling,
Of Jesus and Heaven above;
Keep telling to others you meet on the way,
The wonderful story of love.

2. If you would win others for Jesus today,
Bright stars for your crown up above,
Keep joyfully telling to all on the way,
The beautiful story of love. [Refrain]

3. Keep telling of Jesus, His cross and His grave,
Keep telling of Heaven above;
Keep telling—Christ risen and able to save,
The powerful story of love. [Refrain]
