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.

1 Blest Lord, when darkness veils the skies,
Prevent the slumber of my eyes;
Till bowed before the king of kings,
I ask myself the following things.
2 Where have I been, what have I done?
To what new follies have I run?
Have I observed each rising thought;
And done the things which God hath taught?
3 Do secret thoughts and actions prove
My love to God who reigns above?
Do my affections rise on high,
As days and nights successive fly?
4 Do I rejoice in that wise plan,
Which governs all the affairs of man?
Gives life, and health, and joy, and rest,
Or sends affliction when 'tis best?
5 And when God's holy law I hear,
Does it alarm my heart with fear?
Or does it sweetly rule within,
And make me hate and fly from sin?
6 Lord, help me see and try my heart,
And search me through in every part;
Cleanse me from sin and warm my love,
Thus fit me for the world above.
