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 Jesus came from His home on high,
Praise His name forever;
Came on Calvary’s cross to die,
Praise His name forever.

Praise His name, His glorious name,
He purchased salvation for me;
Thro’ His grace and love abounding,
My spirit now is free.

2 Peace and pardon He purchased there,
Praise His name forever;
All to save us from dark despair,
Praise His name forever. [Refrain]

3 Grace and mercy are offered free,
Praise His name forever;
Offered freely to you and me,
Praise His name forever. [Refrain]

4 Life eternal may all receive,
Praise His name forever;
If on Jesus you will believe,
Praise His name forever. [Refrain]

5 Full salvation is now for all,
Praise His name forever;
Come, accepting His gracious call,
Praise His name forever. [Refrain]

6 Heav’n is opened for you and me,
Praise His name forever;
Thro’ salvation so full and free,
Praise His name forever. [Refrain]
