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 love the Holy Bible,
Because therein I see
How Jesus came from glory
To show the way to me;
Oh, how could I have heard His call,
Or else have found the way at all?
The Bible, the Bible!
My treasure and my guide.

2 I trust the Holy Bible,
It is my Father’s word,
Wherein are songs of gladness
That carol like a bird;
I often falter, this I know,
But oh, I love the Bible so;
The Bible, the Bible!
My treasure and my guide.

3 I read the Holy Bible,
And take it for my guide;
And in its blest assurance,
Securely I will hide;
O, that the whole wide world might know,
Whence all our joys and comforts flow;
The Bible, the Bible!
My treasure and my guide.
