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

Refrain:
Oh, my Good Lord's done been here!
Blessed my soul and gone away,
My Good Lord's done been here,
Blessed my soul and gone.
Oh, my Good Lord's done been here!
Blessed my soul and gone away,
My Good Lord's done been here,
Blessed my soul and gone.

1 When I get up in Heaven
And-a my work is done,
Goin' to sit down by Sister Mary,
And chatter with the darlin' Son. [Refrain]

2 Hold up the Baptist finger,
Hold up the Baptist hand,
When I get in the Heavens,
Going a-join the Baptist Band. [Refrain]

3 You may be a white man,
White as the drifting snow,
If your soul ain't been converted,
To Hell you're sure to go. [Refrain]
