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.

1 The welcome news my soul makes glad,
Heaven is mine, Heaven is mine;
If thou wilt let my Saviour in,
Heaven is thine, Heaven is thine.

Refrain:
‘Tis Heaven on earth to think, to know,
Though I want, though I roam,
My mansion’s made, my Master waits,
Heaven is mine, Heaven is home.

2 My weary soul is comforted,
Heaven is mine, Heaven is mine;
When thy soul clings to Christ my Lord,
Heaven is thine, Heaven is thine. [Refrain]

3 My burdens fall, my cares are gone,
Heaven is mine, Heaven is mine;
When thou wilt let Christ bear thy sins,
Heaven is thine, Heaven is thine. [Refrain]

4 In hours of day, in dreams of night,
Heaven is mine, Heaven is mine
O Christian, watch, and pray, and praise;
Heaven is thine, Heaven is thine. [Refrain]
