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. O brother, the millions are dying in sin,
They wander in darkness and night;
O heed thou God’s message, His fullness receive,
And carry thy brother the light.
Accept Him today; no longer delay,
The Comforter gladly receive;
He waits for thy call; give over thy all,
’Tis only to ask,
’Tis only to ask and believe.

2. No more in the wilderness, sad and afraid,
Thy weary existence prolong;
But cross over Jordan, thy riches possess,
And sighing shall turn into song.

3. Come, enter the battle, will full armor on,
With victory assured o’er the foe;
The power of the Spirit, abiding within,
Gives victory wherever you go.
