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 way of the cross means sacrifice,
As to God you yield your all;
To be laid on the altar, the place of death,
Where fire will surely fall.

’Tis the way of the cross! are you willing for this?
What does bearing the cross mean to you?
You who’ve given yourself, your all, to God!
To God are you wholly true?

2 As the voice of song and prayer we raise,
How easy to say, We give all!
Till some rougher cross lies just before,
And sterner is duty’s call. [Refrain]

3 Do you falter then, or, true to death,
Just die on the cross in the way,
Till the fullness of life from the Living One
Is filling you day by day? [Refrain]

4 ’Tis the place of life—for you die to live,
One with Jesus crucified;
With the life alone to be lived thro’ you,
Of the risen, the glorified! [Refrain]
