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.

5366. On the Good and Faithful

1. On the good and faithful
God has set His love;
When they call He sends them
blessings from above.
Stand in awe, and sin not,
bid your heart be still;
Through the silent watches
think upon His will.

2. Lay upon God’s altar
good and loving deeds,
And in all things trust Him
to supply your needs.
Anxious and despairing,
many walk in night;
But to those that fear Him
God will send His light.

3. In God’s love abiding,
I have joy and peace
More than all the wicked,
though their wealth increase.
In His care confiding,
I will sweetly sleep.
For the Lord, my Savior,
will in safety keep.
