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 thanks to God, for He is good,
His mercy ever doth endure;
Let all of Israel now say
His mercy evermore is sure.

Refrain:
It is better to trust in the Lord,
It is better to trust in the Lord,
It is better to trust in the Lord,
Than to put your confidence in man.

2 Let now the house of Aaron say
His mercy ever doth endure;
Let them that fear the Lord now say
His mercy ever doth endure. [Refrain]

3 In my distress I called on God;
Jehovah heard my earnest prayer;
And since the Lord is on my side,
What man can do I will not fear. [Refrain]
