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 Savior now is standing at the door,
He seeks to enter in,
And if you’ll heed His loving call today,
He’ll save you from all sin.

Jesus is calling, is calling, is calling,
Jesus is calling,
Open your heart’s door wide and let Him in.

2 Though long He’s stood and tarried there in vain,
In love He waits today,
O hear His precious gentle voice that calls,
And turn Him not away. [Refrain]

3 Just now admit this glorious heav’nly guest,
Why longer cling to sin?
Eternal life and joy He waits to give,
To those who let Him in. [Refrain]

4 O do not grieve Him longer by delay,
The door swing open wide,
Invite Him now to quickly enter in,
Forever to abide. [Refrain]
