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.

Hear us, O Lord, in time of need

Hear us, O Lord, in time of need

Published in 6 hymnals

Representative Text

1 Hear us, O Lord, in time of need,
And let Thy name our cause defend;
Grant that our efforts may succeed,
And victory on our steps attend.

2 On horse and chariot some rely,
And some in numbers make their boast;
Our trust is in the Lord most high;
His favor is itself a host.

3 In His salvation we rejoice,
And lift our banners in His name;
Lord, hear our supplicating voice,
And put our haughty foes to shame.

4 Spread over us Thy sheltering wing,
And bless with peace our favored land;
That we may still Thy glory sing,
By whose protecting care we stand
