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’m climbing Zion’s mountain,
With Jesus as my guide,
I’ll reach the cleansing fountain—
The precious crimson tide.

I’m onward, upward climbing
Mount Zion’s rugged side;
I’ll reach the land immortal
And there in joy abide.

2 Earth’s storms are all below me—
Her floods can reach me not;
Close to the "Rock of Ages"
I’ll find a sheltered spot. [Refrain]

3 Ne’er was a friend so faithful,
And ne’er a guide so true;
I will to Him be loyal
The whole long journey through. [Refrain]
