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 Because thy trust is God alone,
Thy refuge is the Highest One,
No evil shall upon thee come,
Nor plague approach thy guarded home.

2 Angelic guards at His commands
Will bear thee safely in their hands,
Will keep thee, lest, if left alone,
Thou dash thy foot against a stone.

3 Though fierce and treacherous foes assail,
Their power and wrath shall not prevail;
Their cruel strength, their venomed spite,
Thou shalt o'ercome with conquering might.

4 Because on me he set his love,
I will his constant Savior prove,
And since to him My Name in known,
I will exalt him as My own.

5 As oft as he shall call on Me,
Most gracious shall My answer be;
I will be with him in distress,
And in his trouble I will bless.

6 Complete deliverance I will give,
And honor him while he shall live;
Abundant life I will bestow,
To him My full salvation show.

The Psalter: with responsive readings, 1912
