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 happy in Jesus, rejoicing today;
And Jesus my Saviour with me has his way;
The Comforter comes in my glad heart to stay;
O glory to Jesus! I’m free!

Refrain:
I’m free, free! gloriously free!
No longer by sin I am bound;
The precious blood cleanseth and satisfies me,
This freedom in Jesus I’ve found.

2 This freedom in Jesus means blessed release,
From sin and from sinning forever to cease;
And freedom from self brings such infinite peace;
O glory to Jesus! I’m free! [Refrain]

3 This freedom in Jesus is glorious rest,
A peaceful reclining on his loving breast;
And when I just trust him my soul is so blest;
O glory to Jesus! I’m free! [Refrain]

4 His love is so tender, his pow’r so divine,
My all to his keeping I gladly resign;
A vessel of clay for my Lord to design;
O glory to Jesus! I’m free! [Refrain]

5 No longer I’m fettered the Lord hath control,
The clear light of heaven breaks in on my soul;
I’ll sing while the years of eternity roll,
O glory to Jesus! I’m free! [Refrain]
