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 voice that calls me on, I must go,
I cannot tarry long here below;
’Tis a voice I long to hear,
’Tis a voice that bids me cheer,
And it calls me to my heav’nly home.

Home sweet home, home above,
Home of the kindred dear;
I would fly on wings of love,
To that happy home above,
For my Savior beckons me there.

2 I never will depart from that voice,
It cheers my fainting heart, I rejoice;
It tells of love divine,
Oh, I’m glad that love is mine,
And it calls me to my heav’nly home. [Refrain]

3 That voice still calls me on, I must go;
With Jesus I’ll be soon, this I know;
Hallelujah to His name,
Free from sin and death I am,
I am longing for my heav’nly home. [Refrain]
