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 of Nazareth, healer of men,
Curer of halt and of blind;
Worker of wonders, again and again,
Seeking the sad ones to find.

Jesus of Nazareth, tell it again:
Died on the cross for sinful men.

2 Jesus of Nazareth, curer of sin,
Seeker for lost and defiled;
Striving so kindly the straying to win,
Loving each penitent child. [Refrain]

3 Jesus of Nazareth, dying for all,
Hanging in pain on the tree;
Suffering so meekly, that we who may call,
Pardon thro’ Him may have free. [Refrain]
