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. Jesus my Friend, my Lord, my King,
Thou art the Rock to which I cling;
I know Thy promise is for me:
I claim it, Lord, I’m free!

I trust in Thee to take me thru,
I trust in Thee to keep me true;
Thou art the Life, the Truth, the Way,
Lead Thou me on to realms of day.

2. Jesus my Rock, in Thee I hide,
Whatever ill my soul betide;
How safe am I from strife and sin
The rifted rock within! [Refrain]

3. Thou art the reservoir of grace;
My trembling hand in Thine I place;
Let storms break forth and thunders roll,
There’s peace within my soul. [Refrain]

4. My soul is safe, my anchor’s cast,
The morn of joy will break at last;
Then I shall see my Savior King
And His high praises sing. [Refrain]
