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.

Was It Enough?

Representative Text

1. Was it enough, that God should die
To take away my sin?
Enough to close the door of Hell,
And stop my falling in?

How deep His mercy runs:
That I, a treas’nous wretch, should be
Adopted as His son!

5. To wear His name, to feel His kiss,
To lie in that embrace,
What grand, mysterious gentleness
Shines in my Father’s face!
