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 Together met in Jesus’ name,
Jesus is here, Jesus is here;
Today as yesterday the same,
Jesus is here, Jesus is here;
He bears the faintest sigh for rest,
The weakest throb of aching breast;
Accept Him as a welcome guest,
Jesus is here, Jesus is here.

2 To give the guilty conscience rest,
Jesus is here, Jesus is here;
To soothe the heart by grief oppressed,
Jesus is here, Jesus is here;
The weary, heavy laden soul
Its burdens may upon Him roll;
He waits to take and bear the whole,
Jesus is here, Jesus is here.

3 Your sins and guilt before Him lay,
Jesus is here, Jesus is here;
The worst He will not turn away,
Jesus is here, Jesus is here;
For you His precious blood was shed,
In death for you He bowed His head,
His arms of love are round you spread,
Jesus is here, Jesus is here.
