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 Marvel not when friends forsake you,
For the world is ever vain;
Only seeking sinful pleasures
And the joys of earthly gain.

Refrain:
Marvel not whate’er befall you,
Trust the Savior all the way,
For one day He’ll bear you safely
To the realms of brightest day.

2 Marvel not, oh! unbeliever,
If your way is rough and bare;
Marvel not, for without Jesus,
You no holy joys shall share. [Refrain]

3 Marvel not that Satan’s power
Can allure a soul to strife;
Keep your own heart fixed on Jesus,
And you’ll win eternal life. [Refrain]
