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, I come, I come to Thee!
Thy word alone can make me free,
For Thou hast died to ransom me.
Saviour, to Thee I come,
Saviour, I come!

2 Saviour, I come to Thee for grace!
And humbly take the lowest place,
If I can only see Thy face!
Saviour, to Thee I come,
Saviour, I come!

3 Saviour, I come to Thee for rest!
My weary soul with guilt oppressed,
O let me lean upon Thy breast!
Saviour, to Thee I come,
Saviour, I come!

4 Saviour, I come, I come to Thee!
To Thy dear cross alone I flee,
Thy sacrifice my only plea!
Saviour, to Thee I come,
Saviour, I come!
