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 Pray on; nor faint, nor cease,
Nor ever weary grow,
Until the answer come in peace;
Faint not, pray on.
Pray on; it is the way
He takes to succor thee
With strength for ev’ry day;
Faint not, pray on.

2 Pray on; in faith and love,
Believing in His pow’r
To hear thee from His throne above;
Faint not, pray on.
Pray on; the promise rests
Upon unceasing pray’r;
‘Twill win thy soul’s requests;
Faint not, pray on.
