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 would you be numbered as one of His fold?
Be spotless within;
Be watching and waiting that sight to behold,
He’s coming again!

Refrain
He’s coming again!
He’s coming again!
Be watching and waiting that sight to behold;
He’s coming again!

2. Not known is the moment when He shall appear,
To gather them in;
The souls who have followed Him faithfully here;
He’s coming again! [Refrain]

3. The voice of His Spirit says, ready, then be,
O will you begin?
If peace in His presence you hope then to see;
He’s coming again! [Refrain]

4. Risk not, an acceptance of Him in that day,
All covered with sin,
Be robed and all ready, the Spirit doth say,
He’s coming again! [Refrain]
