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.

1 Like Noah’s dove, I found no rest
Outside the Ark, unsaved, unblest,
But when away on sin’s deep sea,
A sweet voice said, “Come unto me.”

O refuge sweet, on Jesus’ breast,
In him alone is perfect rest;
From every fear and sin set free,
Dear Saviour, let me rest in thee.

2 As to the Ark the dove did fly
For rest and safety, so did I;
My weary soul found refuge there,
Where Jesus waits to answer pray’r. [Refrain]

3 Now safe in him, tho’ storms arise,
And darkness seem to veil the skies;
Sweet peace is mine, I trust his care
Whose mercies now enclose me there. [Refrain]

4 Within the Ark—‘twere death outside—
I dwell secure, and satisfied;
My soul is safe from all alarms,
Upheld by “Everlasting arms.” [Refrain]
