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’s a message full of hope
For the penitents who mourn,
With a heart of sorrow weeping o’er their sin;
For our blessèd Lord has said,
He that cometh unto Me,
I will never cast away, but take him in.

Christ can save and keep, we know;
He will wash as white as snow,
’Tis a message full of hope;
Tell it out where’er you go.

2. There’s a message full of hope,
Tho’ their many sins appear
Like a mountain reaching upward to the sky,
And the spirit low may sink
’Neath the burden, in despair,
And they fear that no deliverer is nigh. [Refrain]

3. There’s a message full of hope,
When at last we bid farewell
To our friends and all those earthly scenes for aye;
For the Master we have loved
Is the pilot who will guide
All the faithful to the land of endless day. [Refrain]
