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.

My Life's Fountain

Representative Text

1 My Saviour, Father, Guide and Friend,
A solace to the mourning,
A wise Creator, powerful Hand;
A Judge to the scorning.

2 He leads me by His loving hand,
His gentle voice does guide me;
He vowed that He would ne’er forsake
And always walk beside me.

3 When I am frightened He is there
To comfort and sustain me.
His words give wisdom to my ear,
And peace will always claim me.

4 My Saviour has made me to go
With Him o’er plain or mountain;
And I will gladly follow Him,
For He is my life’s fountain.
