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. Onward go the sunbeams,
Shining all the day;
Looking down upon us,
Now they seem to say:
Let your smile be cheerful,
Ever warm and bright,
Make the hearts around you
Happy with its light.
Marching on together,
Thro’ this fleeting world below,
Helping one another
Onward as we go;
Work and be joyful
Till the day of life is past;
Work and be earnest,
Night is coming fast.

Refrain:
Onward go the sunbeams,
Shining all the day;
Looking down upon us,
Now they seem to say:
Let your smile be cheerful,
Ever warm and bright,
Make the hearts around you
Happy with its light.

2. Hearts and hands to Jesus,
Gladly we will give,
In the path of duty,
Walking while we live;
Cheering on the sad ones,
Lifting those that fall,
Shining like the sunbeams,
Doing good to all.
Marching together,
Dropping words and kindly deeds,
Close to the Saviour
Follow where He leads,
Think what a blessing
God the Father gave to man;
Then do for others
All the good we can. [Refrain]
