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 Seed Of David

Representative Text

1 O Seed of David, Son of God,
Thou from eternity
Were born to bear our curse as one
That hangeth on a tree.

2 For grace on earth could not prevail
Nor peace with man be made,
’Till sin’s full price to rend the veil
At Calvary was paid.

3 Lo, crushed that Seed in earth was placed,
But rose a Holy Vine;
A Tree of Life replete with grace
And mercy for mankind.

4 How blest that hour of brokenness
When mercy heard my plea,
To save me from my guilt and sin—
To hang my soul in Thee.
