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.

Grace dwells with justice on your throne

Grace dwells with justice on your throne

Author: Isaac Watts (1719, alt. 2013)

Representative Text

Grace dwells with justice on your throne,
and those who love your word
have heard your wisdom, and have known
your heavenly counsels, Lord.

I'll think again of all your ways,
and talk your wonders o'er: —

when flesh could hope no more.

I will forbid a hopeless thought,
some dark, despairing claim,
remembering good your hand has wrought;
your hand is still the same!

I'll meditate your works of old;
our God, who reigns above;
I'll hear your ancient wonders told,
and learn to trust your love.
