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. Lord, Thy pitying eye can see,
How I long to learn of Thee,
Long to trust Thy strength entire;
Fill me with Thy holy fire.

Refrain
Moved by love, moved by love,
Let me never from Thee rove;
Precious Savior, O so dear,
May I love Thee more and more.

2. Cleansed from self and works of flesh,
Grant me, Lord, Thy truth and grace;
Make me earnest, brave, yet mild;
Keep me ever undefiled. [Refrain]

3. ’Tis so sweet this life of trust,
Yielding not because I must,
As in potter’s hands the clay,
Molded, Lord, in Thine own way. [Refrain]

4. Reaching out for others, too,
There is much for us to do;
In this world so dark with sin,
God of love, shine in, shine in. [Refrain]
