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 Saviour, break this heart of mine,
Melt it now with love divine;
Only thou my help must be,
Only thou canst set me free.

Out of the deep and miry clay
Take me away, oh, take me away;
Show me the Rock, O Lord, I pray,
Rock of eternal ages.

2 Bend thine ear and hear my cry,
Leave me not in sin to die;
This my hope, my only plea,—
Thou didst come to rescue me. [Refrain]

3 Reach thy hand and lift my soul
From the waves that o’er me roll;
Where for refuge can I flee?
Lord, I perish; save thou me. [Refrain]

4 Save me now and evermore;
Lord, I would thy name adore;
Hide my trembling soul in thee;
Lord, I perish; save thou me. [Refrain]
