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 Tell it! let the people hear it,
“Jesus saves from sin!”
Let the breezes bear the message,
“Jesus makes men clean;
Jesus shed His blood to save us!”
Tell it far and wide,
“In no other is redemption
Save the crucified!”

Tell it far and wide,
Tell it far and wide,
“In no other is redemption,
Save the Crucified;
Tell it far and wide,
Tell it far and wide,
“In no other is redemption,
Save the Crucified.

2 Tell it to the lone and weary,
To the blithe and gay;
To the aged with their burdens,
To the child at play.
“There is full and free salvation!”
Hear the blessed word,
“There is mercy and true healing
In Christ’s precious blood!” [Refrain]

3 Free the mercy, full the pardon,
Jesus died to give!
Sweet the welcome that the sinner
Surely will receive.
Weary, weak and heavy laden,
Come to Him today,
Let the cleansing blood of Jesus,
Wash your sins away. [Refrain]
