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 The Jordan is rolling between me and home;
I stand on the margin; the summons has come;
My Joshua leads me thro' death’s darkest wave;
His hand is unerring, and mighty to save.

Mighty to save, mighty to save;
The Lord is my Leader, and mighty to save.

2 The world is behind me; life’s trials are o’er;
Lo! heav’n is appearing; I see the blest shore;
Bright angels are beaming their welcome to me,
And God, my Redeemer, in glory I see. [Refrain]

3 O Saviour, be near me; keep hold of my hand;
The waters, tho' surging, will own Thy command;
My fears have all vanished; death’s terrors are gone;
I walk thro' the river and up to the throne. [Refrain]
