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. Weary spirit, seeking rest,
In the Savior repose;
Lay thy burden at His feet,
He will lighten thy woes.

Refrain
Come, come believing, wholly trusting, be free;
There is room in the presence of Jesus for thee,
Come, come believing, wholly trusting, be free;
There is room in the presence of Jesus for thee.

2. Art thou wand’ring from the fold?
Take this promise divine:
If repentant thou wilt come,
Jesus’ pardon is thine. [Refrain]

3. Laden soul, with sin oppressed,
Jesus beckons thee home;
Wilt thou rest in His embrace?
Leave thy sorrow and come. [Refrain]

4. Weary spirit, burdened one,
Seek the Comforter nigh;
Rest confiding in His love;
Jesus hears every sigh. [Refrain]
