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.

Peace, Be Still

Representative Text

1 Blessed Redeemer, I love Thee so well,
Thy great salvation I never can tell;
Glory to God! it is precious, I know,
Washing me whiter than snow.

Jesus is stilling the tempest and storm;
Jesus is stilling the tempest and the storm.

2 Oh, it is wonderful how I am blest,
In His pavilion forever at rest;
Trusting, believing, He saith, “Peace, be still”;
Now I repose in His will. [Refrain]

3 Christ is our Captain, He’ll pilot us o’er
Life’s raging sea, to that bright, happy shore;
’Mid the rough billows, though fast they may come,
Safely He’ll gather us home. [Refrain]

4 Like a fond mother who stilleth her child,
Jesus doth say to that dark ocean wild,
“Cease from thy trouble, I say, peace, be still,”
And it obeyeth His will. [Refrain]

5 Hear the great Pilot the ocean command,
Wondrous the pow’r of Emmanuel’s hand;
Be thou not fearful, though breakers should roar,
Jesus is guiding us o’er. [Refrain]
