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

THE Lord is King! I own his power,
His right to rule each day and hour;
I own his claim on heart and will,
And his demands I would fulfil.

2 He claims my heart, to keep it clean
From all defiling taint of sin;
He claims my will, that I may prove
How swift obedience answers love.

3 He claims my hands for active life
In noble deeds and worthy strife;
He claims my feet, that in his ways
I may walk boldly all my days.

4 He claims my lips, that purest word
In all my converse may be heard;
My motives, passions, thoughts, that these,
My inner life, my King may please.

5 He claims the brightness of my youth,
My earnest strivings after truth;
My joys, my toil, my craftsman’s skill,
All have their place, and serve his will.

6 O Lord, my King, I turn to thee!
Thy loyal service makes me free;
My daily task thou shalt assign,
For heart and will and life are thine.
