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 wandered through the wilderness,
But God reached out His hand,
And drew me safe to Canaan’s shore;
I’m in the promised land.

Refrain:
I am in the promised land, hallelujah!
I have reached the land of corn and wine;
I have joined the happy band, hallelujah!
And the blessèd promised land is mine.

2 The Lord upholds me by His grace,
And will no ill allow;
He leads me on from height to height,
And sanctifies me now. [Refrain]

3 My eyes are fixed on Him alone,
I’m pressing for the goal;
And as I climb the mountainside,
His glory fills my soul. [Refrain]

4 The Holy Spirit guides me in
The path my master trod;
With songs of rapture all today
I praise the Lamb of God. [Refrain]
