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 Work and Pray, O work and Pray!
See the fields of golden grain;
But the reapers, where are they?
Shall the Master call in vain?

Refrain:
Work and pray, O work and pray!
Time is hast’ning on its way;
Soon the harvest will be o’er,
And the summer come no more.

2 Work and pray, the hours are few;
Gather souls for Christ the Lord;
He will find a place for you;
Trust in Him for your reward. [Refrain]

3 Work and pray till morn is past,
And the noonday speeds its flight;
Till the sunbeams fade at last
Into ev’ning’s dewy light. [Refrain]

4 Happy they whose willing hands
Do the work that God has giv’n;
Faithful here to His commands,
They shall find sweet rest in heav’n. [Refrain]
