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. If birds that neither sow nor reap
Nor store up any food
Constantly find to them and theirs
A Maker kind and good;

2. If man provide eke for his birds,
In yard, in coops, in cage;
And each bird spends in songs and tunes,
His little time and age;

3. What care will man, what care will God
For wife and children take?
Millions of birds and worlds will God
Sooner than His forsake.
