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.

143. I've Reached the Port of Peace

1 Tho' stormy gales sweep o'er life's sea,
Tho' breakers all around may be,
Praise God, no harm can come to me,
I've reached the port of peace.

Chorus:
I've reached the port of peace,
Such great, abiding peace;
Tho' storms may sweep life's mighty deep,
I've reached the port of peace.

2 Of judgment long I stood in awe,
Its terrors only I foresaw,
But, since I've learned to love God's law,
I've reached the port of peace. [Chorus]

3 Now let the days be what they will,
I hear that whisper, "Peace, be still;"
Safe anchored here, I fear no ill,
I've reached the port of peace. [Chorus]

4 The world may smile, the world may frown,
May lift me up or cast me down;
I know my Bark, it cannot drown,
I've reached the port of peace. [Chorus]
