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.

I am alone, yet not alone

I am alone, yet not alone, For Thou art near

Author: John Brownlie
Tune: MY LORD AND FRIEND
Published in 2 hymnals

Representative Text

1 I am alone, yet not alone;
Lord, you are near:
I cannot see your loving face,
but I can hear
the cheering promise of your grace.

2 You will not leave me in the dark
when falls the night,
for round my path and in my soul
your are the light
to guide me with your sweet control.

3 No need can steal my rich supplies
Of love and peace;
for though I lack what others hold,
my stores increase
with heavenly gifts more rare than gold.

4 And you will bear me all life through,
and in the end
will still abide what you have been,
my constant friend,
and take me where your face is seen.
