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 What I am, Thine eye can see,
Yet I come, O Lord, to Thee:
Tho' my sins are crimson red,
Yet for me Thy blood was shed.

Chorus:
This my plea, my only plea:
Thro' Thy off’ring once for me,
I may cast myself on Thee,
Jesus, my Redeemer.

2 As I am, I seek Thy face,
Kneeling at the door of Grace;
O forgive this heart of mine,
Cleanse me now and seal me Thine. [Chorus]

3 As I am, O blessed Lord,
I believe and trust Thy word;
Let my soul no longer roam,
Take, O take the wand’rer home. [Chorus]

4 Lost, but found, my sins forgiv’n,
Child of God and heir of Heav’n;
Lost, but found, what joy is mine!
Thou dost cleanse and keep me Thine. [Chorus]
