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 me, my Savior! where Thou dost feed Thy flock,
Resting beside the rock, cool in the shade.
Why should I be as one turning aside alone,
Left, when Thy sheep have gone, where I have strayed?

2 Seek me, my Savior! for I have lost the way.
I will Thy voice obey; speak to me here!
Help me to find the gate where all Thy chosen wait;
Ere it shall be too late, oh, call me near!

4 Show me, my Savior! how I can grow like Thee;
Make me Thy child to be, taught from above;
Help me Thy smile to win; keep me safe folded in,
Lest I should rove in sin, far from Thy love.
