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. Savior, I by faith am touching
Thee, the source of every good;
Virtue now, by faith am claiming,
Thro’ the cleansing of Thy blood.

Touching Thee, new life is glowing,
By Thy Spirit’s burning flame;
Cleansing, purging, spirit filling,
Glory to Thy holy name!

2. Touching Thee in faith, I promise,
By Thine own unfailing aid,
Prompt obedience, instant service,
When and where it should be paid. [Refrain]

3. Touching now Thine outstretched scepter,
O most mighty King of kings;
Of Thy fullness now receiving,
High I mount on eagle wings. [Refrain]

4. Grace and virtue, strength and wisdom,
All my need, by Thee supplied,
Keep me touching, keep me claiming,
Keep me ever at Thy side. [Refrain]
