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.

Bridegroom, thou art mine

Representative Text

1 Bridegroom, Thou art mine,
Jesus, Lamb divine;
Saved from sin, to Thee I render
Thanks for love so pure and tender,
That has made me Thine,
Jesus, Lamb divine.

2 Very man and God,
Comfort 'neath the rod,
Thou wast born in woe to languish,
Rescuing souls from endless anguish
By Thy crimson blood,
Very man and God.

3 Let my faith's pure light
Not go out in night;
Pour on me the oil of gladness,
That amid earth's sin and sadness,
In me faith's pure light
Go not out in night.

4 Give to us Thy peace,
Thou who dost not cease
Warmly us to love who know Thee,
Bear Thy name, and honor show Thee:
Let our love not cease,
Give to us Thy peace.

5 Here through scorn and frown,
There the glorious crown;
Here in hoping and believing,
There in seeing and receiving;
After scorn and frown
comes the glorious crown.

6 Jesus, dearest Friend,
Help me to contend:
Make me o'er all foes victorious
Through Thy victory so glorious;
May I comprehend
How Thou dost contend.

7 Thou my Joy replete,
Sharon's Rose so sweet;
My desire and praise and treasure,
Naught shall move me but Thy pleasure,
Sharon's Rose so sweet,
Thou my Joy replete!
