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. Leave the future to our Father,
Trust Him still to care for thee;
Living bravely in the present,
As He gives thee light to see.

All thy days are in His keeping,
Be they dark or be they fair,
And He watches, never sleeping,
Holds thee in His tender care.

2. Take thy life as He may give it,
For He knoweth what is best;
Every day shall show thee duty,
Every night gives sweetest rest. [Refrain]

3. He will teach thee all thou needest,
Guidance give from day to day;
In the sunshine or the shadows,
Look to Him, for He’s the way. [Refrain]
