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 Traveler on the road of sin and sorrow,
Baffled by the storms, and in despair,
Fear not, for the dawn will come tomorrow,
When will flee all trials, toil and care.

Look beyond! the clouds are parting slowly;
Look beyond! to pearly gates so fair;
Look beyond! where rest the meek and lowly;
Look beyond! the crowns and palms are there.

2 There are trials that we must encounter,
Overcome we must our stubborn wills;
Fly to Jesus, then, the living water—
He can wash and cleanse us from all ills. [Refrain]

3 Look beyond, there’s rest just over yonder;
Soon we’ll leave this earthly house of clay;
If we’re ready, freely death may sunder.
Bright will dawn the light of perfect day. [Refrain]
