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 must walk thro’ the valley and the shadow,
But I’ll journey in a loving Saviour’s care;
He hath said He will never, never leave me,
With His staff He will comfort me there.

Refrain:
Thro’ the valley, thro’ the valley,
Thro’ the valley and the shadow I must go;
But the dark waves of Jordan will not harm me,
There is peace in the valley, I know.

2 Tho’ I walk thro’ the valley and the shadow,
Yet the glory of the dawning I shall see;
I shall join in the anthems over Jordan,
Where the loved ones are waiting for me. [Refrain]

3 I shall walk thro’ the valley and the shadow,
I shall follow where my Lord has gone before;
Thro’ the mists of the valley He will lead me,
Till I rest on the Evergreen Shore.
