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 early springtime, in its morning fair,
Little buds of promise, little blossoms rare;
Hear the words of Jesus, precious will they be,
Bring the little children, "Let them come to Me."

Refrain:
"Let them come to Me,
Let them come to Me,
Bring the little children,
Let them come to Me."

2 He will now receive you if your hearts you bring
Humbly to the Savior, Heav’n’s exalted king;
For the invitation, gracious, full and free,
Says to all the children, "Come, O come to Me. [Refrain]

3 Jesus, we are coming, to Thy loving arms;
Safely there reposing, sin no longer harms;
From the wiles of Satan Thou canst set us free;
Tho’ we’re little children, we will come to Thee. [Refrain}
