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.

Thou Didst Think Of Me

Representative Text

1 When Thou didst with pitying eye
Leave Thy Father’s throne on high—
Leave a heavenly diadem
For a crib in Bethlehem,
Jesus, Thou didst think of me;
Do I, do I think of Thee?

2 Blessing, helping everyone,
Yet rejected by Thine own;
Buffeted and spit upon,
O, Thou blessèd Holy One,
This, because Thou thought of me!
Do I, do I think of Thee?

3 Praying in Gethsemane;
Agonizing on the tree;
When, with breaking heart, Thou cried
"It is finished," bowed and died,
Jesus, Thou didst think of me!
Do I, do I think of Thee?

4 On His hands my name I see:
In the grave He thinks of me,
Vain, oh Calvary, Thy doom!
Jesus rises from the tomb,
Evermore to think of me;
Jesus, I will think of Thee.
