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.

Mein Heiland, welche Huld und Liebe

Representative Text

1 Mein Heiland, welche Huld und Liebe
Und welch Erbarmen wohnt in Dir!
Wer fasset Deine Hirtentriebe,
Womit Du pflegst die Deinen hier,
Für welche Du Dein teures Leben
Aus freier Liebe hingegeben!

2 Wenn ich ermüde, wenn ich leide,
Dann bleibest meine Zuflucht Du,
Du führest mich auf grüne Weide
Und leitest mich zur ew'gen Ruh'.
Und dürst' ich – Du bist meine Quelle,
Du labst und stärkest meine Seele.

3 Ja, Du bist's, der mich reichlich segnet,
Du bist und bleibst mein höchstes Gut,
Du bist's, der freundlich mir begegnet,
Bei Dir mein Herz stets sicher ruht.
Wohin ich gehe, ich Dich finde,
Und Deine Lieb' ich nie ergründe.

4 Von dieser Liebe will ich singen,
Die mich so reich, so glücklich macht,
Anbetung Deiner Treue bringen,
Die mich beschützet Tag und Nacht.
O daß sich stets mein Herz erfreue
An Deiner Lieb' und Hirtentreue!
