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.

Done Made My Vow

Sometimes I'm up, sometimes I'm down; See what the end will be

Tune: [Sometimes I'm up, sometimes I'm down]
Published in 2 hymnals

Representative Text

Done made my vow to the Lord,
And I never will turn back,
Oh I will go, I shall go
to see what the end will be.

1 Sometimes I’m up, sometimes I’m down;
See what the end will be,
But still my soul is heav’nly bound,
See what the end will be. (refrain)

2 When I was a mourner just like you;
See what the end will be,
I prayed and prayed ’til I came through,
See what the end will be.
