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 soul, from Calv’ry’s cross
A voice is calling thee,
The voice of Him who died
To make you free.
Refrain
He gave His life for thee,
He gave His life for me,
And still in patient love,
He pleads now with thee.

2. They nailed Him to the cross,
With thorns they pierced His brow,
O come in faith alone,
And trust Him now.
Refrain

3. ’Tis done, My work is o’er;
O hear His bitter cry,
That shook the trembling earth,
And rent the sky.
Refrain

4. He died, but lives again;
O blessèd truth divine!
Thro’ Him eternal joy
May yet be thine!
Refrain
