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 the greatest joy is found along the way,
And the heart is happy, singing all the day,
For the Lord with richest blessing doth repay,
When we use our talents for the Master!

Refrain
O the joy that service for the Savior brings,
How the heart rejoicing at its duty sings!
In some other heart the joy-bell sweetly rings,
When we use our talents for the Master!

2. Some may have a voice to speak a cheering word,
Let the Gospel news o’er all the world be heard,
Other souls to better living can be stirred,
When we use our talents for the Master! [Refrain]

3. Some may have a willing hand to lend and aid,
Helping those who by their burdens are dismayed,
Richly will the little efforts be repaid,
When we use our talents for the Master! [Refrain]

4. Let us then be up and doing all the while,
Helping one another meet the daily trial,
For some weary soul with hope will brightly smile,
When we use our talents for the Master! [Refrain]
