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

Refrain:
We've come a long way, Lord,
a mighty long way.
We've come a long way, Lord,
a mighty long way.
We've borne our burdens in the heat of the day,
but we know the Lord has made the way.
We've come a long way, Lord,
a mighty long way.

1 I've been in the valley
and I prayed night and day.
I've been in the valley
and I prayed night and day.
I've been in the valley
and I prayed night and day,
And I know the Lord has made the way.
We've come a long way,
a mighty long way. [Refrain]

2 I've had hard trials
each and ev'ry day.
I've had hard trials
each and ev'ry day.
I've had hard trials
each and ev'ry day,
But I know the Lord has made the way.
We've come a long way,
a mighty long way. [Refrain]
