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 have followed truth and justice;
leave me not in deep distress;
be my help and my protection,
let the proud no more oppress.
For your word and your salvation,
LORD, my eyes with longing fail;
teach your statutes to your servant,
let your mercy now prevail.

2 I am yours, O give me wisdom,
make me know your truth, I pray;
sinners have despised your statutes;
now, O Lord, your pow'r display.
LORD, I love your good commandments
and esteem them more than gold;
All your precepts are most righteous;
hating sin, to these I hold.
