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 vain the Savior’s mightiest foes
Conspire His kingdom to oppose,
Crushed like the potter’s brittle store,
And scattered, to unite no more.

2 Sinners! awake: ye fools! be wise;
From sin’s delusive dreams arise;
Behold your Savior, seek His face,
And kiss the scepter of His grace.

3 O, lest ye perish from the way
That leads to realms of endless day;
Lest fierce the threatening storm descend,
And on your heads its fury spend.

4 If, yet but kindly in His breast,
His wrath the guilty soul arrest,
How blest are they who serve the Lord,
Who hear His voice, and trust His Word!
