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. My heart has come to the place of rest,
Leaving it all with Jesus;
The fear of death doth no more molest,
I’m leaving it all with Jesus.

Refrain
Leaving it all with Jesus,
Leaving it all with Jesus;
My peace today, as on yesterday,
Is leaving it all with Jesus.

2. I’ve brought the guilt of my weary soul,
Leaving it all with Jesus;
I’ve brought not part of it, but the whole,
I’m leaving it all with Jesus. [Refrain]

3. I’m walking safe in a path unknown,
Leaving it all with Jesus;
I find the path with His blessings strown,
I’m leaving it all with Jesus. [Refrain]

4. O wounded soul, here is heav’nly balm,
Leaving it all with Jesus;
Then change thy moan to a joyous psalm,
In leaving it all with Jesus. [Refrain]
