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.

Lord, by thy word deliverance work

Representative Text

1 Lord, by Thy Word deliv'rance work,
And stay the hand of Pope and Turk,
Who fain from Christ would wrest the crown,
And from His kingdom hurl Him down.

2 Lord Jesus Christ, Thy power make known,
For Thou art Lord of lords alone;
Defend Thy Christendom, that we
May evermore sing praise to Thee.

3 Thou Comforter of priceless worth,
Give us one mind and heart on earth;
Be with us in our last dread strife,
And lead us out of death to life.

4 Destroy their counsels, Lord our God,
And humble them with iron rod;
And let them fall into the snare
Which for Thy Christians they prepare.

5 So that at last they may perceive
That, Lord our God, Thou still dost live,
And dost deliver mightily
All those who put their trust in Thee.
