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.

He Will Care for Me

Representative Text

1 I walk today in the Christian way,
Though dangers I may see;
I will not fear for the Lord is near,
And He will care for me.

Refrain:
No matter what happens, He will care for me;
He will care for me, He will care for me.
And His mighty hand will enable me to stand,
No matter what happens to me.

2 No test I face but sufficient grace
Is ready for my need;
When sorrows rise to obscure my skies,
He proves a friend indeed. [Refrain]

3 He will not fail in the strongest gale
That stormy winds can blow;
And in His grace is a hiding place
Unknown to any foe. [Refrain]

4 I trust in Him though disasters grim
Before me seem to be;
He calms my fears, and He dries my tears,
And faithful is to me. [Refrain]
