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. Let us away, no longer delay,
Morning with joy is bright;
Let us away and labor today
Out in the fields so white.

Refrain
Onward, onward, bounding along,
Onward, onward, join the busy throng.
Shouting, singing, o’er the harvest plain;
Joyful, joyful, gather in the grain.

2. Let us away, the message obey,
Jesus repeats the call;
Come with a will, our mission fulfill,
Haste to the work for all. [Refrain]

3. Let us away, we cannot delay,
Harvest will soon be o’er;
Moments and hours, like beautiful flow’rs,
Soon will return no more. [Refrain]

4. Let us away, O let us away,
Lifting our eyes above;
Faithful and true our labor pursue,
Trusting a Savior’s love. [Refrain]
