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.

Come Holy Ghost, Lord God, and fill

Representative Text

1 Come, Holy Ghost, Lord God, and fill
With Thy rich grace heart, mind,and will,
And each believing soul inspire
With thine own pure and holy fire.
Lord, by the brightness of Thy light,
Thou in the faith dost men unite
Of ev'ry land and ev'ry tongue:
This to Thy praise, O Lord, be sung.
Hallelujah! Hallelujah!

2 Thou holy Light and Guide divine,
O cause the Word of life to shine;
Teach us to know our God aright,
And call Him Father with delight.
Keep us, O Lord, from all strange lore,
That we may seek no master more,
But with true faith in Christ abide,
And heartily in Him confide.
Hallelujah! Hallelujah!

3 Sweet Source of comfort, Holy Love,
Send us Thy succor from above,
That in Thy service we may stay,
And troubles drive us not away.
Lord, with Thy grace our souls refresh,
Confirm our frail and feeble flesh,
That we through life and death to Thee
May press with Christian chivalry.
Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
