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 tried to count His blessings,
and I fail to understand
Why the Lord should so richly reward;
Could I count the stars of heaven,
add to them earth’s grains of sand,
Still His blessings are more, praise the Lord!

And the end is not yet, praise the Lord,
And the end is not yet, praise the Lord;
Blessings new He’s still bestowing,
And my cup is overflowing,
And the end is not yet, praise the Lord!

2. Like an army I behold them
pass before me in review,
O what joy doth the sight now afford!
Tho’ they may be long in passing,
still they come, battalions new,
And the end is not yet, praise the Lord! [Refrain]

3. Surely goodness, love and mercy
have been mine along life’s way,
And my weak heart to strength is restored;
And my cup of joy and gladness
keeps o’erflowing, day by day,
And the end is not yet, praise the Lord! [Refrain]
