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 Herr Gott nun sei gepreiset,
wir sag'n Dir Lob und Dank,
Du hast uns wohl gespeiset,
und geben guten Trank,
Dein' Mildigkeit zu merken,
und unsern Glaub'n zu stärken,
das Du seist unser Gott.

2 Ob wir solch's hab'n genommen
mit Lust und Uebermaaß,
dadurch wir möchten kommen
vielleicht in Deinen Haß,
so woll'st Du's uns aus Gnaden,
o Herr, nicht lassen schaden:
durch Christum Deinen Sohn.

3 Also woll'st allzeit nähren,
Herr, unser' Seel' und Geist,
in Christo ganz bekehren,
und in Dir machen feist,
daß wir den Hunger meiden,
stark sein in allen leiden,
und leben ewiglich.
