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 Der Herr ist mein getreuer Hirt.
Er sorgt, daß mir nichts mangeln wird.,
Er weidet mich auf grüner Au,
tränkt mich wie Blumen durch den Tau.

2 Ref:
Der Herr ist mein getreuer Hirt!
Der Herr ist mein getreuer Hirt!

3 Mit milder Hand gibt Er das Brot.
Er stillt den Schmerz und hilft aus Not.
Gesund lässt Er mich tätig sein,
schenkt uns zur Arbeit das Gedeihn.

4 Er führet mich auf rechter Bahn.
Mich täuscht kein Irrtum, schreckt kein Wahn.,
Er ist mein Stecken und mein Stab.,
Von Gott kommt mir mein Trost herab.
