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 Savior, is precious to me,
He careth for me;
Loving and keeping me happy and free,
He careth for me.

He careth for me, He careth for me;
He loves and He keeps me, I’m happy and free.
He careth for me, He careth for me;
He loves and He keeps me, He careth for me.

2 Tho’ storms and tempests may break o’er my soul,
He careth for me;
Safely I’m kept under Jesus’ control,
He careth for me. [Chorus]

3 When I am tempted and wander astray,
He careth for me;
When I grow weary and faint by the way,
He careth for me. [Chorus]

4 Tho’ my path leads me where dangers betide,
He careth for me;
Still He is with me, my Shield and my Guide,
He careth for me. [Chorus]
