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 my heart is the Lord’s
All His works I shall do;
In my life I will show
That to Him I am true.

Refrain
Doing His will I never shall stray
Far from the beautiful path away.

2. If I keep in the way
Where He bids me abide,
I shall be safe from harm
With my Lord close allied. [Refrain]

3. He will guide me in peace,
Be my stay and my shield,
And no foes shall prevail
While He owns me His child. [Refrain]

4. Thro’ the years of my life
His exceeding reward
Shall be mine, till the end
Purest bliss shall afford. [Refrain]
