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.

1. We come before Thy throne today,
Thy promised presence claim;
O come and enter now our hearts,
And set our souls aflame.

Refrain
Lord, send Thy blessing,
Lord, send Thy blessing,
Lord, send Thy blessing
On our waiting souls.

2. We know that Thou art present here,
Thy grace to us reveal;
We fain would know Thy blessèd will,
Thy holy presence feel. [Refrain]

3. O send to us Thy quick’ning pow’r,
All guilt and dross remove;
O let our waiting hearts be filled,
Dear Savior, with Thy love. [Refrain]

4. Accept the homage that we bring,
O Lord, we humbly pray,
Bestow Thy richest blessings now,
And meet with us today. [Refrain]
