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 "’Tis all too late," the sinner cries,
Deluded by his sin,
Nor yet believes His Savior died
A sinful world to win.

2 Lord! turn us to Thy cross, that so
This dark delusion break;
Thy Spirit work in us to know
Salvation for Thy sake.

3 There is no mystery in faith,
To know, obey, and love,
The word that marks our earthly path,
And tells of Heaven above.

4 The mystery’s in sin, whereby
We hide us from Thy face:
And full of self and woe, deny
The richness of Thy grace.

5 Have mercy, Lord, that we unlearn
This treacherous mystery,
And deeply own the cross, discern
The hope that rests in Thee.
