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 My Father, hear my prayer,
Before I go to rest;
It is Thy little child
That cometh to be blest.

2 Forgive me all my sin,
And let me sleep this night
In safety and in peace
Until the morning light.

3 Lord, help me every day
To love Thee more and more,
And try to do Thy will
Much better than before.

4 Now look upon me, Lord,
Ere I lie down to rest;
It is Thy little child
That cometh to be blest.

Amen.
