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.

1. When little children do the wrong,
And do not wish the Lord’s to be—
Does He behold their every deed?
Can Jesus see? Can Jesus see?

2. When little children falsely speak,
Or take in vain that name so dear,
Though all unheard, their words may seem,
Can Jesus hear? Can Jesus hear?

3. When little children, in their hearts,
Give evil thoughts a chance to grow,
Ere yet their bitter fruits they bear,
Can Jesus know? Can Jesus know?

4. Yes, Jesus sees our every deed,
And hears each word our lips let fall;
He knows our every secret thought,
And He by these will judge us all.
