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

God is my Strength and God is my Song.
God is the One to whom I belong.
God is my Refuge, my Healer and Friend.
God is my Strenth and my Song.

1 Loving me always through trials and tears,
granting me comfort and calming my fears;
guiding my footsteps, preparing my way...
fulfilling his purpose for me. [Refrain]

2 Blessing me daily with blessings to spare,
promising answers to each fervent prayer;
crowning my life with his goodness and grace...
fulfilling his purpose for me. [Refrain]

3 Here at his table my cup overflows.
Goodness and mercy he freely bestows.
God's hand in mine as the gourney unfolds...
fulfilling his purpose for me. [Refrain]

4 Thanks be to God for the fullness of days,
love and its gifts and a lifetime to praise;
hope for tomorrow and what lies ahead...
fulfilling his purpose for me. [Refrain]
