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 There is a question I’d like to ask of thee,
Thou who art Christ refusing;
What will thy fate at the judgment be,
With all thy sins against thee?

How wilt thou stand at the judgment bar?
Judged by the Christ rejected?
You must accept Him, for as you are,
O sinner, thy soul is lost.

2 Often has pardon been offered thee,
Yet thou dost spurn the pleadings;
Eternal death must thy wages be,
If thou hast life rejected. [Refrain]

3 Yet there is hope; wilt thou break away?
Simply believe on Jesus;
From death to life thou canst pass today,
Freed from sin’s condemnation. [Refrain]
