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. Take Jesus with you, along the way,
Have sweet communion with Him each day;
This Elder Brother ’tis joy to know,
Take Jesus with you, where’er you go.

A sweet companionship is this to know and share,
A blessèd fellowship of joy most rare;
Would you be happy, the Savior know?
Then take Him with you where’er you go.

2. Take Jesus with you, His wondrous power
Will bless and brighten the darkest hour;
Your cares and troubles the Lord doth know,
Take Jesus with you where’er you go. [Refrain]

3. Take Jesus with you, His precious name
And great salvation to all proclaim;
Your friend and Savior to others show,
Take Jesus with you where’er you go. [Refrain]

4. Take Jesus with you, and then at last,
When evening shadows are gathering fast,
He will sustain you and bear you o’er
The rolling Jordan to Canaan’s shore. [Refrain]
