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 Somebody did a kind deed today,
Was it you? Was it you?
Somebody sent a kind thought on its way,
Was it you? Was it you?
Somebody spoke a loving word,
That an answering chord in a hard heart stirred,
Recalling a long lost voice, once heard.
Was it you? Was it you?

2 Somebody helped an erring one’s feet,
Was it you? Was it you?
The path of virtue and truth to keep;
Was it you? Was it you?
Whispered of peace and sins forgiven,
Of a better life and a hope of Heaven;
And the chains that bound his soul were riven;
Was it you? Was it you?

3 Somebody rested a tired one,
Was it you? Was it you?
Who had toiled all day till the setting sun;
Was it you? Was it you?
Finished for him the task half done,
Encouraged his heart for the days to come,
And told of victories yet to be won.
Was it you? Was it you?
