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 thee, O Lord, I put my trust,
I call upon thy name;
O save me in thy righteousness,
nor let me suffer shame.

2 Bow down thine ear to my request,
and swift deliv'rance send;
be thou to me a rock of strength,
a fortress to defend.

3 Since thou my rock and fortress art,
my leader be, and guide;
from all temptation rescue me,
thou dost my strength abide.

4 To thee my spirit I commend;
redemption is with thee,
O thou Jehovah, God of truth,
who hast delivered me.

5 I hate all those that love the false,
my trust is in the Lord;
I will be glad, and joyfully
thy mercy will record.

6 For my affliction thou hast seen,
and known my many woes;
thou hast not let me be enslaved,
but freed me from my foes.

7 Show mercy, Lord, to me distressed,
and send my soul relief;
my life is spent with bitterness,
my strength consumed with grief.

8 My life has aged grown with woe,
with sighs my years decay;
my eye is worn for very grief:
I pine and waste away.

9 My foes have made me a reproach,
my state my neighbors see;
my friends, appalled at my approach,
turn them about and flee.

10 For I have heard defaming tongues,
and marked the terror rife,
when all in league deliberate
to take away my life.

11 But, Lord, in thee is all my trust;
"Thou art my God," I cried.
My life, my times are in thy hand,
I in thy strength confide.
