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 Now our hymns are ended, all our songs are sung,
Willing praise we’ve rendered, every heart and tongue.

Grant us all Thy blessing, as Thy house we leave,
And Thy benediction may we all receive;
Be with us and guide us, send Thy light before,
Closely walk beside us till we meet once more.

2 Everywhere surrounded by Thy loving care,
May our faith be founded on Thy precepts fair. [Refrain]

3 Thro’ earth’s joys and sadness, thro’ the day and night,
Fill us with Thy gladness, lead us with Thy light. [Refrain]
