Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

1 Jesus, Saviour, we would see Thee,
Lifted high upon the tree;
Bearing there our sins and sorrows,
Setting us forever free.

We would see Jesus, we would see Jesus;
He is our Saviour, and glorious King;
Him would we follow, thro’ sunshine and shadow;
Now and forever His praises will sing.

2 Jesus, Teacher, we would hear Thee,
Hear Thy voice and it alone;
Learn the lessons Thou wouldst teach us,
Speak the words that Thou wilt own. [Refrain]

3 Jesus, Master, we would serve Thee,
Fill each day with loving deeds;
Comfort those whose hearts are weary,
Like Thyself supply their needs. [Refrain]

4 Seeing, hearing, learning, speaking,
Serving daily, faithfully;
May men see in us, Thy brethren,
All that Thou wouldst have us be. [Refrain]
