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 love of God we never
Can fully comprehend;
But oh, we’ll praise it ever,
Changeless, faithful without end!

O love of God, O saving love,
That saw our sin and woe;
And sent the Son from Heav’n above
That we His love might know!

2 O it was love that sought us
In darkness and distress,
And love untold that bought us
Pardon, peace and righteousness. [Refrain]

3 His Spirit He has given,
O gift of love unknown!
’Twill lead us home to Heaven
To joys around the throne! [Refrain]
