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.

2 My sins and follies that grieve Him,

3 The scoffs of those who despise Him,
And the sneers of those who revile,
Are enough for my loving Savior
To bear for me awhile. [Refrain]
