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 word for you to speak,
There’s a deed for you to do;
And word and deed are waiting
Just for you, only you;
And word and deed are waiting
Just for you, only you.

2 Grand and glorious words will ring,
Till the world is thrilled anew;
Sweet, homely words are waiting,
Just for you, only you;
Sweet, homely words are waiting
Just for you, only you.

3 While the heroes storm the heights,
In the valley wet with dew
Some wounded soul is waiting
Just for you, only you;
Some wounded soul is waiting
Just for you, only you.

4 Ever, as you journey on,
Under cloud or under blue,
Do well the work that’s waiting
Just for you, only you;
Do well the work that’s waiting
Just for you, only you.

5 When, at last the work is done
And the weary journey thro’,
A starry crown is waiting
Just for you, only you;
A starry crown is waiting
Just for you, only you.
