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.

All Thru The Night

Representative Text

1 Jesus Christ my Lord will keep me
All thru the night,
By His counsel guide and lead me
All thru the night;
Night of sin and death and sorrow;
He will keep till dawns the morrow;
From this world I need not borrow,
All thru the night.

2 Darker grow the shadows round me
Dark is the night;
Snares of Satan oft surround me
Dark is the night.
But my pathway Jesus brightens,
Every heavy burden lightens;
Nothing moves me, nothing frightens,
Tho’ dark the night.

3 Hark! a solemn voice is sounding
All thru the night;
’Tis the voice of God resounding
All thru the night;
Telling of the preparation
Needed by earth’s every nation
To escape the tribulation,
Earth’s darkest night.

4 Sun of righteousness appearing,
He’ll end the night;
I can see the day is nearing
When ends the night
Sleeping saints will rise all glorious,
Raptured, too, will swell the chorus;
Earth will crown my king victorious,
Thus ends the night.
