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.

The Voice of Jesus Calls His People

The voice of Jesus calls his people

Author: Joy F. Patterson (1993)
Tune: THE VOICE OF JESUS
Published in 1 hymnal

Representative Text

1 The voice of Jesus calls his people,
"Come to my table and be fed!"
For those who come to him believing,
he is the Wine, he is the Bread.
All who are lost, or bear great burdens,
all who need comfort or release,
come where the presence of Christ Jesus
will nourish us with rest and peace.

2 Children and elders, mean and women,
whatever color, race or tongue,
in Jesus find themselves united,
in him a home where they belong.
We hear your loving voice, O Jesus,
we long, we hunger to be fed;
in joy we gather at the table
where you are Wine, and you are Bread.
