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.

Father, I will not pray

Father, I will not pray

Published in 3 hymnals

Representative Text

Father, I will not pray
Freedom from earthly ill;
But may Thy peace be o’er my way
With its dove-pinion still!

O, let a sense of Thee,
Of Thy sustaining love,
My bosom-guest forever be,
Where’er I rest or move!

A heavenly light serene,
With its unfading beams,
Within my trusting heart be seen,
More bright than childhood’s dreams!

So let me walk with Thee,
Thy presence round my way;
Made by Thine aiding spirit free;
Thy love, my joy and stay.
