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 We have wandered far away from our Father’s home,
In the dark and dreary paths of sin;
But we hear our Savior’s voice calling us to come,
And at once a better life begin.

Refrain:
We are coming home,
We are coming home,
Coming home today;
We have heard Thy loving voice,
Blessèd Savior, and rejoice;
We are coming home today.

2 We are coming now by faith, by the Spirit led,
We are coming with our hearts to Thee;
We are trusting in the blood that for us was shed,
And the Holy Spirit sets us free. [Refrain]

3 We have kindred gone before, to the heavenly home,
And they draw us by the chords of love;
They are calling us today, calling us to come,
To the happy, happy home above. [Refrain]
