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 Into Thy service, Lord, Thou callest me;
Faithful in all my work help me to be;
Emptied of self and sin, with only Christ within,
Aid me lost souls to win from sin to Thee.

2 Thou gav’st Thyself for me,Lord, Thou art mine;
I give myself to Thee, Savior divine;
Now for Thine own name’s sake, I full surrender make;
All I possess now take, all, all is Thine.

3 That I Thy will may do, show me the way;
For this my strength renew from day to day;
This is my earnest plea, Thine wholly, Lord, to be,
Serve ever only Thee, and Thee obey.
