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. When the pendulum of time shall forever cease to swing,
And Jehovah’s trump o’er all the earth shall sound;
When the nations all shall rise, marching forth in solemn tread,
Tell, oh, tell me, on which side will you be found?

Refrain
On the Lord’s side, on the Lord’s side,
I will answer when Jehovah’s trump shall sound;
On the Lord’s side, on the Lord’s side,
Safely gathered with the faithful I’ll be found.

2. When the Book is opened there in the presence of the King,
And the millions crowd the judgment bar around;
When the hosts of great and small, over there before Him stand,
With the just upon the right will you be found? [Refrain]

3. There the secrets of the heart, good or evil tho’ they be,
He the righteous Judge will herald far and near;
When the nations He divides, as the shepherd doth his sheep,
Tell, oh, tell me, on which side will you appear? [Refrain]
