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.

Give Us, O God, the Grace to See

Give us, O God, the grace to see

Tune: JORDAN (Tang)
Published in 1 hymnal

Representative Text

1 Give us, O God, the grace to see
Your smile within the morning light;
Your signature upon the sea;
Your shadow in the blackest night.

2 Give us, O God, the grace to hear
Your Word when marble turns to clay;
Your voice when thunder clouds appear;
Your answer when the mountains sway.

3 Give us, O God, the grace to feel
Your breath upon the winds of change;
Your kiss in sacraments that heal;
Your hand in what the years arrange.

4 Give us, O God, the grace to be
Convinced when miracles are rare;
Your truth when stars turn ebony;
Your saints till earth has no despair.
