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 will lift the cloud of night before you,
though with wrong I'll make it right before you,
all your battles I will fight before you,
and the high place I'll bring down.

Refrain:
When you walk and lose the way I'll lead you;
on the produce of the land I'll feed you;
And a home within my heart I'll deed you;
and the high place I'll bring down.

2 With an everlasting love I'll love you,
though with wrong I'll make it right before you,
still there's nothing that can hurt or move you;
and the high place I'll bring down. [Refrain]

3 Although Satan in a rage would tear you,
and with every winning art would snare you,
yet from youth to your old age I'll bear you
and the high place I'll bring down. [Refrain]

4 I will lift the cloud of night before you,
I will make the crooked straight before you,
I will spread my wings protecting o'er you;
and the high place I'll bring down. [Refrain]
