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. In the darkness of Gethsemane,
In the garden all alone,
Jesus drank the cup for you and me,
Suffered, bled and died on Calvary,
’Neath the glory of His throne,
’Neath the glory of His throne.

2. Crucified upon the cruel tree,
See the bleeding Son of God!
Dying on the cross for you and me,
With a broken heart on Calvary,
Where my sins were bathed in blood,
Where my sins were bathed in blood.

3. Jesus, take my love and gratitude,
Take me as I am just now,
Tho’ my heart in sin is sinking low,
Thou canst cleanse and make me white as snow,
While before Thy cross I bow,
While before Thy cross I bow.
