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.

O Master Workman of the Race

Representative Text

1 O Master Workman of the race,
thou Man of Galilee,
who with the eyes of early youth
eternal things did see,
we thank thee for thy boyhood faith
that shone thy whole life through;
"Did ye not know it is my work
my Father's work to do?"

2 O Carpenter of Nazareth,
builder of life divine,
who shapest us to God's own law,
thyself the fair design,
build us a tower of Christ-like height
that we thy land may view
and see, like thee, our noblest work
our Father's work to do.

3 O thou who dost the vision send
and givest each their task,
and with the task sufficient strength,
show us thy will, we ask;
give us a conscience bold and good,
give us a purpose true,
that it may be our highest joy
our Father's work to do.
