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 Gentle Savior, be thou near us,
As we from each other part;
May thy word, its truth impressing,
Shed its light on every heart.

2 As the closing hour draws near us,
And the night steals gently on,
Let thy gracious presence cheer us,
Guard us till the coming morn.

3 When the night of death comes o'er us,
And our earthly prayers are o'er,
O receive us home to glory,
There to praise thee evermore.
