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 LORD! from the deeps I cry to Thee!
2 My voice Lord do thou hear!
And to my supplications voice,
O give attentive ear!
3 Lord, who can stand, if thou, O JAH
shouldst mark iniquity?
4 But with Thee there forgiveness is
that feared thou may'st be.

5 Therefore for Thee, O LORD, I wait,
my soul still waits for Thee;
And on thy known and faithful word
I hope continually.
6 My soul looks out more for the Lord,
than watchers in the night;
Yea more than watchers wearied out,
look for the dawning light.

7 Let Isr'el then wait hopefully,
and on the LORD confide;
For boundless mercies with the LORD
continually reside:
8 Yea plenteous redemption is
eternally with him;
And Isr'el He from all their sins
will perfectly redeem.
