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 rise to praise Thee now, dear Lord,
For all the blessings of Thy Word,
And for the light which Thou hast giv’n,
To show the path that leads to Heav’n;
But others in the dark today
Are failing still to find the way;
O grant Thy kingdom soon may come;
Bring all Thy children safely home.

2. Yet as we pray, condemned we stand;
To us Thou gavest the command,
Go ye into the world and preach,
The Gospel to all nations teach;
With deep contrition, Lord, we own,
As now we stand before Thy throne,
How little we have done to bring
The world to Thee, its rightful king.

3. Forgive us, Lord, and make us know
Just the right thing for each to do;
Come now and with Thy Spirit fill,
That we may do Thy perfect will:
Then we may pray, and Thou wilt hear,
And give the answers to the prayer,
That Thou wilt make Thy kingdom come,
And bring Thy ransomed children home.
