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 love thee, O my Lord, my might

I love thee, O my Lord, my might

Representative Text

1 I love Thee, O my Lord, my Might,
My Rock, my Fortress, Saving Power,
My God, my Trust, my Shield in fight,
My great Salvation, my High Tower,
My great Salvation, my High Tower.

2 I to Jehovah lift my prayer,
To Whose great name all praise we owe,
So shall I by his watchful care
Be kept in safety from my foe.
Be kept in safety from my foe.

3 By floods of wickedness distressed,
With deadly sorrows compassed round,
My soul, with mortal pain oppressed,
Within the snares of death was found.
Within the snares of death was found.

4 Distressed I called upon the Lord,
And cried to God my prayer to hear;
My voice He from His temple heard;
My cry ascended to His ear.
My cry ascended to His ear.

5 Lo, then the mountains firm did quake;
The trembling earth throughout its frame
Did from its deep foundations shake.
For He in His fierce anger came.
For He in His fierce anger came.
