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.

5 Accept a soul so dearly bought;
Bought by Thy life upon the tree;
A soul which by Thy Spirit taught,
Knows no delight but serving Thee.
