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 burdened soul no longer wait,
But give your wand’rings o’er;
Now humbly kneel at Jesus’ feet
And slight his call no more.

Refrain:
Will you come to the cross
Where happy you may be?
Will you come to the cross,
His blood your only plea?
In the cross, blessed cross,
Is pardon full and free;
Will you come, he will save you there?

2 Behold a fountain filled with blood,
He opened long ago;
And there your sins, tho’ crimson red,
Shall be as white as snow. [Refrain]

3 Behold a straight and narrow path,
That leads to endless day;
O seek it now thro’ Christ the Lord,
There is no other way. [Refrain]

4 Then turn to him in simple faith,
Accept his promise true;
And O! believe with all your heart
That Jesus died for you. [Refrain]
