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 find each day new victory

Representative Text

1. I find each day new victory,
When Jesus has control,
And blessings that are sent to me,
When Jesus has control.

When Jesus has control,
When Jesus has control;
He leads the way from day to day,
When Jesus has control.

2. I find new joys unknown before,
When Jesus has control,
And peace abiding more and more,
When Jesus has control.

3. I find new strength to conquer wrong,
When Jesus has control,
And blessings with the victor’s song,
When Jesus has control.

4. I find new light upon my way,
When Jesus has control,
To light and guide me day by day,
When Jesus has control.

5. I look beyond life’s unknown sea,
When Jesus has control,
And see the Homeland waiting me,
When Jesus has control.

William C. Poole was born and raised on a farm in Maryland. His parents belonged to the Methodist church. He graduated from Washington College and became a Methodist minister in Wilmington, Delaware area. He was pastor of McCabe Memorial, Richardson Park and other churches. In 1913 he was superintendent of the Anti-Saloon League of Delaware. He wrote about five hundred hymns. The writing was done as recreation and a diversion from his pastoral work. His goal in writing as well as in being a minister was to help people.
