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 "God is good," the dancing sunbeams
Paint in tints of gold
"God is good," within their petals
Nature’s flowers enfold.
"God is good," the sparkling raindrops
Speak in music low,
"God is good," the limpid brooklets
Ripple as they flow.

Refrain:
"God is good," and man He loveth
With an endless, endless love.
"God is good," oh, may we sing it
In His happy home above.

2 "God is good," rings through the woodland—
Birds peal forth the song.
"God is good," the stars are beaming
In their glorious throng.
"God is good," the rainbow smileth
From the glowing sky.
"God is good," the south winds softly
Through the forest sigh. [Refrain]

3 "God is good," all nature’s ringing
With the note of praise.
"God is good," O man, re-echo!
Grateful pæans raise.
"God is good," and man He loveth
With an endless love.
"God is good," oh, may we sing it,
In His home above. [Refrain]
