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 soul is resting in God’s peace,
Without a doubt or fear;
The boisterous waves of trouble cease,
For Christ, my Lord, is near.

Resting, resting,
Resting in God’s sweet peace;
Resting, resting,
I’m resting in God’s sweet peace.

2 The Spirit poureth from on high,
A sanctifying tide,
And bathing in its streams of joy,
My soul is satisfied. [Refrain]

3 My hand in His, I will not fear,
How fierce may be the storm;
I’m sheltered in His love each day,
And kept from all alarm. [Refrain]

4 He drives my ev’ry doubt away,
He gives me childlike faith;
And so I take the yea or nay,
Just as my Father saith. [Refrain]
