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 speak to the sinners around you,
And help them the floodtide to stem;
O tell of the Saviour that found you,
And the love that is seeking for them.

Refrain:
No longer a moment delay,
But lead them to Him while you may;
For souls may be lost while you linger;
O hasten, and tell them today!

2 O tell them the Saviour is willing,
And lead them before Him to bow,
For, ev’ry sweet promise fulfilling,
He is waiting to bless even now. [Refrain]

3 O give them the kind invitation,
And tell them ‘tis madness to wait;
O tell them the news of salvation,
Before ‘tis forever too late. [Refrain]
