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 Weep not Him who onward bears
His cross to Calvary;
He does not ask man's pitying tears,
Who wills for man to die.

2 The awful sorrow of His face,
The bowing of His frame,
Come not from torture of disgrace;
He fears not cross or shame.

3 There is a deeper pang of grief,
An agony unknown,
In which His love finds no relief;
He bears it all alone.

4 He thinks of all for whom His life
Of lowliness and pain,
And weariness and care and strife
Will be, alas, in vain.

5 He sees the souls for whom He dies
Yet clinging to their sin,
And heirs of mansions in the skies
Who will not enter in.

6 Ah! this, my Savior, was the shame
That bowed Thy head so low,
These were the wounds that wracked Thy frame,
And made Thy tears to flow.

7 O may I in Thy sorrow share,
And mourn that sins of mine
Should ever wound with grief or care
That loving heart of Thine.

Amen.
