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 the Father’s only Son,
And with Him in glory One,
One in wisdom, One in might,
Absolute and infinite;
Jesu, I believe in thee,
Thou art Lord and God to me.

2. Preacher of eternal peace,
Christ anointed to release,
Setting wide the dungeon door,
Unto sinners chained before;
Jesu, I believe in Thee,
Christ the Prophet sent to me.

3. Low in deep Gethsemane,
High on dreadful Calvary,
In the garden, on the cross,
Making good our utter loss;
Jesu, I believe in Thee,
Priest and Sacrifice for me.

4. Ruler of Thy ransomed race,
And Protector by Thy grace,
Leader in the way we wend,
And Rewarder at the end;
Jesu, I believe in Thee,
Christ, the King of kings to me.

5. Light revealed through clouds of pain,
That the blind might see again;
Love content in death to lie,
That the dead might never die:
Jesu, I believe in Thee,
Light and Love and Life to me.

6. All that I am fain to know
While I watch and wait below:
All that I would find above,
Length and depth and height of love:
Jesu, I believe in Thee,
Thou art All in All to me.
