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 words of the Master are ringing, ringing,
In ears so long deaf to his call;
Their message of tenderness bringing, bringing,
Salvation to one and all.

Coming, I’m coming to thee!
Coming, I’m coming to thee!
From sin to be free, only thine to be,
With gladness I’m coming to thee.

2 The feet of the Master are showing, showing,
The pathway to dwellings above;
Where we by our faith should be going, going,
Upheld by Christ’s boundless love. [Refrain]

3 The life of the Master is pleading, pleading,
Is pleading with you and with me;
It shows me how much I am needing, needing,
The help that is found in Thee. [Refrain]
