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 invites you to feast with Him now;
Come to Him now, come to Him now;
If at His cross you will but meekly bow,
Come to Him now, come to Him now;
Jesus will pardon if you will confess;
Jesus will turn into joy your distress;
Jesus will save and most wondrously bless;
Come to Him now, come to Him now.

2. If you but knew of the joy He’ll impart,
Come to Him now, come to Him now;
You would most gladly surrender your heart;
Come to Him now, come to Him now;
He’ll write your name in the Lamb’s book of life;
He’ll drive away all your sorrow and strife;
He’ll make your pathway with vict’ry more rife;
Come to Him now, come to Him now.

3. Jesus is ready salvation to give,
Come to Him now, come to Him now;
Will you not hasten, and pardon receive?
Come to Him now, come to Him now;
Now while He calls you, O brother, obey;
Now while He’s waiting, no longer delay;
Jesus is anxious to save you today;
Come to Him now, come to Him now.

4. If you refuse Him a place in your heart,
Come to Him now, come to Him now;
He may forever, and ever depart;
Come to Him now, come to Him now;
If His sad death on the cross you despise,
Closing your heart against love’s sacrifice,
You at the last may be filled with surprise;
Come to Him now, come to Him now.
