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 Repeat the sweet story of Jesus to me,
Oh, tell me the story once more;
Tho’ often I’ve heard it, each time it is told,
’Tis sweeter than ever before.

Refrain:
Oh, tell me the story of Jesus once more;
’Tis sweeter, yes, sweeter
Each time than before.

2 Oh, tell me once more of His wonderful love,
His goodness and mercy to me;
When hopelessly lost in the darkness of sin,
He found me and bade me go free. [Refrain]

3 Oh, tell me again of the land of the blest,
Where sorrow and sin never come;
Where I with the Savior shall evermore dwell,
Oh, tell me of Heaven, my home. [Refrain]
