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 There is a fountain flowing free,
With bright and crimson sheen;
’Twas opened in King David’s time,
To make the sinner clean.

This fountain opened in David’s time,
Still flows with grace divine;
And whosoever will enter in,
Shall be saved and cleansed from sin.

2 On Calvary’s brow the Savior bled,
For you, His life He gave;
He bore the sins of all the world,
And from all sins doth save. [Refrain]

3 Come, sinner, come, your sins confess,
And let this fountain roll;
With cleansing power the crimson tide
Will wash and make you whole. [Refrain]

4 I come, O Lord, with contrite heart,
I all my sins forsake;
I plead Thy promise, trust Thy Word,
I now my Savior take. [Refrain]
