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 walk in the footsteps of Jesus,
Child of His wonderful love;
O follow, for soon they will guide thee
Up to those mansions above.

Yes, walk in the footsteps of Jesus,
Keeping fast hold of His hand,
For thus will He guide thee and lead thee
On to the heavenly land.

2. O walk in the footsteps of Jesus,
Weary one, burdened with care,
Now lift up thine eyes unto Heaven,
Lift up thy spirit in prayer. [Refrain]

3. O walk in the footsteps of Jesus,
Mourning one, over the dead,
For gently His arms will enfold thee,
Tenderly pillow thy head. [Refrain]
