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 soul doth wait on God

My soul doth wait on God

Published in 1 hymnal

Representative Text

My soul doth wait on God,
From Him my help proceeds;
His mercy is exceeding broad,
To overtake my needs.

He gives His pardoning grace,
When I my sin confess;
Nor ever hides from me His face
In my distressfulness.

The Spirit of all power,
Most freely He bestows;
And I am strong in evil hour,
When pressed by direst foes.

173
Oh, He has gifts in store,
More rich than wealth commands;
And when His pity I implore,
He fills my empty hands.

God, Thou art good and kind,
And full of tender grace;
Have me for ever in Thy mind,
Nor hide from me Thy face.
