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 Time enough, the sluggard cries,

Yet time enough, he hopes, and dies,
And sinks to endless woe.

Refrain:

Then cries, when bound in icy chains,
“Oh, must I go so soon?” [Refrain]

He wakes to Satan’s lie. [Refrain]

4 Time enough, oh, cursed spell!
Sing not that siren song,
Ye mortals on the brink of hell,
Where time is endless long. [Refrain]
