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 sinner, come home, the banquet is waiting,
Return to thy Father, sin’s folly forsaking;
That Father still loves thee, and waits to embrace
His penitent child, when returning through grace.

Refrain:
Then, sinner, come home; the feast is all ready;
Prepared for the blind, the poor and the needy;
The worst are invited, all welcome will be;
Return, then, there’s room at this table for thee.

2 Thy sins have been great, thy wanderings far;
But greater His mercy; then follow yon star,
That leads thee to Him, whom the angels adore;
And be happy at home, thence to wander no more. [Refrain]

3 He will not upbraid thee with sins of the past;
The Lord will forgive; He is true to the last;
The law of His mercy can not be repealed,
It standeth forever, with blood it is sealed. [Refrain]
