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 In loving adoration,
We come to worship Thee,
Thou author of salvation
So wonderful, so free.
Oh, teach us how to praise Thee,
As we before Thee stand,
And hear us as we pray Thee
To bless our own dear land.

2 For millions still in darkness
Within this land of light,
For men who’ve wandered blindly
From home and God and right,
And those who ne’er have seen Thee,
Thou God of love and might,
We earnestly beseech Thee—
May they receive their sight.

3 Be Thou our strong defender,
Our confidence alone;
Be Thou our country’s ruler,
Our nation’s cornerstone;
And thus led by Thy Spirit,
And heeding Thy blest Word,
From ocean unto ocean
All men shall call Thee Lord!
