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 Who’ll be sowing, who’ll be sowing,
Sowing precious golden grain,
In the valley, on the hillside,
Wide across the fertile plain?

Who’ll be sowing, who’ll be sowing,
Who’ll be wowing precious golden grain?
Sowing, reaping, sowing, reaping,
Sowing, reaping golden grain?

2 Who’ll be sowing seeds of kindness
Right and left along the way,
At the home hearth, by the sick couch,
Here and there where’er we stray? [Refrain]

3 Who’ll be sowing deeds of mercy,
Sowing through life’s checkered vale,
Love and honor, virtue, goodness,
Mighty truth that must prevail? [Refrain]

4 May we all be sowing, reaping,
Only best of life’s fair yield,
So that, in the final harvest,
We may reap in heaven’s bright field. [Refrain]
