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. Righteous Father, we have wronged Thee,
Underfoot Thy laws have cast:
Now we fain would serve Thee better,
O forgive us what is past.

2. Loving Jesus, we have hurt Thee,
Yielded to temptation’s blast:
Now we long to stand more firmly,
O forgive us what is past.

3. Holy Spirit, we have grieved Thee,
Sin and death have held us fast:
Now we yearn for life and freedom,
O forgive us what is past.

4. Father, Son, and Holy Spirit,
God eternal, first and last,
Penitent we kneel before Thee,
O forgive us all the past.
