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 Sweeter than the songs we sing,
Better than all earthly things,
Sweeter than the joy they bring,
Sweeter than all is Jesus.

Jesus, blessed name,
Sweeter than all earthly fame;
Jesus, blessed name,
Sweeter than all is Jesus.

2 Love like His will ne’er grow old,
Keeps me safe within the fold;
Sweeter than a world of gold,
Sweeter than all is Jesus. [Refrain]

3 Jesus makes me pure and strong,
Tells me which is right from wrong,
And I praise Him all day long—
Sweeter than all is Jesus. [Refrain]
