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. Let thy morning thoughts be bright
With praises unto God on high;
Let thy heart and voice, rejoicing,
All thy blessings magnify.

Praise ye Jehovah; praise His holy name;
Praise ye Jehovah, all ye ends of earth;
Praise ye His name, forever exalt it;
Let all the earth praise the name of the Lord.

2. Let thy noonday hours be filled
With songs of gladness for thy king;
Gloomy days will ne’er o’ertake thee
When His praises you can sing. [Refrain]

3. Let the closing hours of evening
Hear thy heartfelt words of praise;
For His loving care and keeping,
Praise Him throughout all thy days. [Refrain]
