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 loves the children,
Loves them so, loves them so,
That He died to save them
From a world of woe.

I am but a little child,
This I know, this I know,
But I love the Savior,
Because He loves me so.

2 Jesus bids the children,
Come to Him, come to him,
Even they may find Him
Precious to redeem. [Refrain]

3 Jesus, blessèd Jesus,
Now I pray, humbly pray,
Ever love and keep me,
Take my sins away. [Refrain]
