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 Blessed Savior, while we gather
In Thy precious name,
Help us all to lift our voices
In the glad acclaim.

Refrain:
Thou alone are good and holy,
There is none like Thee;
Now and evermore exalted,
Lord, Thy name shalt be.

2 Thro’ another week departed
Thou hast been our stay;
We have shared Thy gifts and mercies,
New with every day; [Refrain]

3 Thou hast led us, kindly led us,
From our infant years,
Healing all our pains and sorrows,
Calming all our fears. [Refrain]

4 Blessèd Savior, keep, O keep us,
In Thy fold divine;
May Thy beams of love so tender
Round our pathway shine. [Refrain]
