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 Have you trials oppressing?
Falter not!
All to Jesus confessing,
Falter not!
He your burdens will bear,
Every sorrow will share,
And will give you the blessing,—
Falter not!

For the Lord loveth those who fear him,
Those who, lowly in heart, revere him;
In his strength
They at length
Shall become victorious,
Falter not!
He will keep them in safely ever;
In their need he will leave them never;
Over all below
They shall safely go
To a triumph glorious,—
Falter not!

2 Is the day long and dreary?
Falter not!
Is the night dark and eery?
Falter not!
Let his will be your guide,
For his love will provide
A reward for the weary,—
Falter not! [Refrain]

3 Tho’ a host should assail you,
Falter not!
Strength divine will avail you,
Falter not!
Put your trust in the Lord,
And go on to reward,
For he never will fail you,—
Falter not! [Refrain]
