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 of creation, bow
Thine ear, O Christ, to hear
The intercession of
Thy servant true and dear,
That we unworthy, who
have trespassed in Thy sight,
May live before Thee where
he dwells in glorious light.

2. O God our Savior, look
on Thine inheritance,
Sealed by the favor shining
from Thy countenance;
That no false spirit bring
to naught the souls of price
Bought by the merit of
Thy perfect sacrifice.

3. We bear the burden of
our guilt and enmity,
Until Thy pardon lift
the heart from slavery;
Then through the spending of
Thy life blood, King of grace,
Grant us unending triumph
in Thy holy place.

4. To Thee the glorious Christ,
our Savior manifest,
All wreaths victorious, praise
and worship be addressed,
Whom with the living Father
humbly we adore,
And the life giving Spirit,
God forevermore.
