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 sing the power of love divine,
The precious love of Jesus,
That bids the light in darkness shine,
And wins the lost to Jesus.

Refrain
O precious, pure, unchanging love,
The boundless love of Jesus;
It binds our heart in union sweet,
And makes us one in Jesus.

2. ’Tis love that conquers every fear,
The precious love of Jesus,
And now by faith has brought us near
The bleeding side of Jesus. [Refrain]

3. ’Tis love that fills the joyful heart,
And draws it up to Jesus,
Where neither life nor death can part
The sacred bonds of Jesus. [Refrain]

4. When faith and hope have ceased to shine,
And we are safe with Jesus,
We’ll praise the power of love divine
That brought us home to Jesus. [Refrain]
