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 griefs of heart abound,
Relieve my sore distress,
See my affliction and my pain,
Forgive my sinfulness.

2 Consider Thou my foes,
So many and so bold,
For cruel is the hatred, Lord,
Which they against me hold.

3 Defend, and keep my soul,
From foes deliver me,
And let me not be brought to shame:
I put my trust in Thee.

4 Be truth and right my shield,
Because I wait for Thee;
Thy Church, O God, do Thou redeem
From all adversity.

The Psalter: with responsive readings, 1912
