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.

Jesus, Saves Me Through and Through

Representative Text

JESUS, save me through and through,
Save me from self-mending;
Self-salvation will not do,
Pass me through the cleansing.

Through and through, through and through,
Jesus, make me holy;
Save me to the uttermost
All the way to Glory.

2 Through temptations save from sin,
Self and pride subduing;
Save me through and through within,
Save me by renewing.

3 Through the tempest, through the calm,
With the Master talking;
On my own beloved’s arm,
Oft with Jesus walking.

4 Through my thoughts and through my heart,
Through my flesh and spirit;
Save me, Lord, through every part,
Through thy saving merit.
