Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

1. Tell me, brother, worn and weary,
Toiling o’er life’s pathway dim,
Are you shedding light for Jesus,
Are you witnessing for Him?
Are you seeking for the sinners,
Those whom Jesus died to win?
Are you pointing to the fountain
That can wash away their sin?

Tell me, brother, worn and weary,
Toiling o’er life’s pathway dim;
Are you shedding light for Jesus?
Are you witnessing for Him?

2. Are you watching by the wayside
For the fainting ones who fall?
Do you take them to the Savior,
Who has promised rest for all?
Do you love to tell of Jesus
More than all the world beside?
Does it bring a heav’nly blessing
With God’s people to abide? [Refrain]

3. Have you made a consecration
Of your time and earthly store?
Have you placed them on the altar?
Then the Master asks no more.
Thus, O Christian, may we journey,
Showing forth the Savior’s praise,
With our lamps all bright and burning,
That the world may catch their rays. [Refrain]
