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. She came unto Jesus, her heart filled with grief,
She called to Him, "Master, O grant me relief;
My daughter is sick, she is sorely oppressed;
O grant my petition and heal her distress."

2. Her cry was unheeded, in vain did she pray,
Until His disciples said, "Send her away";
Then Jesus rebukingly said, "Not to thee,
To the lost sheep of Israel, salvation is free."

3. "’Tis time, Lord and Master, yet, O hear my prayer,
I ask but for crumbs from Thy table to share;
Thou surely wilt not send me empty away;
O hear my petition, and heal her today."

4. Then Jesus spake to her, in tones all divine,
"Be it as thou wilt and no longer repine;
So great is thy faith, be it now unto thee,
All things that thou asketh, thy daughter is free."
