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 Mercy speaks by Jesu’s blood,
Hear and sing, ye sons of God,
Justice satisfied indeed,
Christ hath full atonement made.

2 Jesu’s blood speaks loud and sweet,
Here all Deity can meet,
And without a jarring voice,
Welcome Zion to rejoice.

3 Should the law against her roar,
Jesu’s blood still speaks with power;
"All her debts were cast on Me,
And she must and shall go free."

4 Peace of conscience, peace with God,
We obtain through Jesu’s blood;
Jesu’s blood speaks solid rest,
We believe, and we are blest.

5 When the blood of sprinkling cries,
Clouds are banished from the skies;
Every attribute divine,
In their greatest glory shine.

6 Jesu’s blood speaks life and power,
And in every trying hour,
Trusting this almighty voice,
Zion must and shall rejoice.

7 Would the Christian walk in love,
Circumspect and godly prove,
Then be this his constant aim,
On the blood of Christ to lean.

8 Here’s his strength to will and do,
And whatever he goes through,
This should be his only plea,
"Jesu’s blood was shed for me."

9 O ye wretched sinners base,
Sunk in sin and sad disgrace;
Hear the blood of sprinkling cry,
Come, and you shall never die.

Gadsby was for many years exceedingly popular as a preacher of the High Calvinist faith, and visited in that capacity most parts of England.
