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. Give light, O Lord, that we may learn
The way that leads to Thee,
That where our hearts true joy discern,
Our life may be.

2. Give light, O Lord, that we may know
Thy one unchanging truth,
And follow, all our days below,
Our guide in youth.

3. Give light, O Lord, that we may see
Where wisdom bids beware,
And turn our doubting minds to Thee,
In faithful prayer.

4. Give light, O Lord, that we may look
Beneath, around, above,
And learn from nature’s living book
Thy power and love.

5. Give light, O Lord, that we may read
All signs that Thou art near,
And, while we live, in word and deed
Thy name revere.

6. Give light, O Lord, that we may trace
In trial, pain, and loss
In poorest lot, and lowest place,
A Savior’s cross.

7. Give light, O Lord, that we may see
A home beyond the sky,
Where all who live in Christ with Thee
Shall never die.
