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, who within my inmost heart e’er dwellest,
Be Thou with me!
Thou refuge of my soul in joy and sorrow,
Be Thou with me!

2 Preserve me, when my cup of bliss o’erfloweth,
From arrogance;
And when my burdened heart within me sinketh,
Be Thou with me!

3 As dew upon the vine, Lord, is Thy blessing,
Else am I weak;
That I may boldly venture on the highest,
Be Thou with me!

4 Oh! Thou who art my strength and consolation,
Be Thou with me!
Until my pilgrimage on earth is ended,
Be Thou with me!
