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.

Upon Thy Table, Lord, We Place

Upon thy table, Lord, we place

Author: M. F. C. Willson (alt.)
Published in 6 hymnals

Representative Text

1 Upon thy table, Lord, we place
these symbols of our work and thine,
life's food won only by thy grace,
who giv'st to all the bread and wine.

2 Within these simple things there lie
the height and depth of human life,
our prayer and thought, our tears and toils,
our hopes and fears, our joy and strife.

3 Accept them, Lord; from thee they come;
we take them humbly at thy hand.
These gifts of thine for higher use
we offer, as thou dost command.
