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. Father, now hear me pray,
Darkness obscures my way;
Help me in faith to say,
"Thy will be done."

"Thy will be done."

4. Father, thy grace supply,
And though I live or die,
Trusting, help me to cry,
"Thy will be done."
