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. Our Father in Heav’n,
On Thee we do call;
Thy Son Thou hast given,
A Savior for all;
But thousands are dying,
Who know not the Lord,
For them we are praying,
O send them Thy Word.

Refrain
The call is great, but in Thy strength
We hasten forth, most gracious Lord,
For thousands die each day and hour,
Who know not Thee, O send Thy Word.

2. For India we pray,
Where millions are taught
To follow the way
Which evil hath wrought;
We, knowing the Savior,
Whose Word is at hand,
O God, may we labor,
To harvest their land. [Refrain]

3. For China we pray, O hasten the time
When bright as the day
The Gospel will shine;
When parents and children
On Jesus shall call,
When all that is hindering
Before Him shall fall. [Refrain]

4. May Africa’s name
No longer be dark,
Wide spread by the flame
From martyrdom’s spark;
May Christians endeavor
To furnish the light,
Both now and forever
Establish Thy sight. [Refrain]

5. From east unto west,
From north unto south,
May nations Thee bless
With heart and with mouth;
Then, Jesus returning
To call home His own,
Brands plucked from the burning
Shall circle His throne. [Refrain]
