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 Upon the cross my Savior died,
And for my sins was crucified;
His love so great, how can it be,
My Savior died, yes, died for me.

O wondrous cross, O Calvary,
My longing eyes look up to thee;
O wondrous cross where Jesus died
And for my sins was crucified.

2 I sought at length His pardon free,
I gained at once sweet liberty;
E’en now by faith I claim Him mine,
I am redeemed by grace divine. [Refrain]

3 Upon the cross of Calvary
His blood was shed, was shed for me;
O precious fount, thy cleansing power,
I need thy healing every hour. [Refrain]

4 I’ll sing His power while I have breath,
I’ll sing His glory after death;
Redeemed, redeemed, I know I’m free;
I’ve peace with God and liberty. [Refrain]
