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 I am safe in Jesus’ keeping ev’ry day,
And His love will never let me fall;
Round about me are His loving arms alway,
He’s my Savior and my all in all.

His love will never let me fall,
His love will never let me fall,
He leads the way both night and day,
His love will never let me fall.

2 When my heart grows weary with the toil and strife,
And the way seems almost hid from view;
Then He speaks to me in gracious words of life
That in weakness oft my strength renew. [Refrain]

3 ’Tis a joy and blessed comfort thus to know
That my Lord will never leave my side;
On the sea, or on the land, where’er I go,
In His mighty love I will abide. [Refrain]

4 Ev’ry day the blessings of His love I see,
Ev’ry day He gives me of His grace;
From the snares of sin He’ll ever keep me free,
Till I look upon His blessed face. [Refrain]
