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 teach me more of Thy blest ways!
Thou holy Lamb of God,
And fix and root me in Thy grace,
As one redeemed by blood.

2 O tell me often of Thy love,

And let my heart with joy confess
That thence comes all my gain.

Whate’er I have but loss,
The dearest object of my love,
Compared with Thee, but dross.

4 Engrave this deeply on my heart
With an eternal pen,
That I may, in some small degree,
Return Thy love again.
