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 Hilf, Helfer, hilf in Angst und Noth,
erbarm dich mein, o treuer Gott,
ich bin ja doch dein liebes Kind
trotz Teufel, Welt und aller Sünd.

2 Ich trau auf dich, mein Gott und Herr!
Wenn ich dich hab, was will ich mehr?
Ich hab ja dich, Herr Jesu Christ,
du mein Gott und Erlöser bist.

3 Deß freu ich mich von Herzen sein,
bin gutes Muths und harre dein,
verlaß mich gänzlich auf dein Nam'n;
hilf, Helfer, hilf! drauf sprech ich: Am'n.
