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 Oh, blessèd grace, so freely giv’n
To mortals such as we!
That raised us up from sin to Heav’n
And keeps us day by day.

“For I know whom I have believèd,
And am persuaded that He is able
To keep that which I’ve committed
Unto Him, against that day.”

2 Oh, wondrous love for loveless souls!
Oh, peace that comes so free!
What everlasting joy will crown
The hearts that trust in Thee. [Refrain]

3 Oh, blessèd hope! ’tis all of grace;
That glory we shall see,
When we behold His lovely face
Throughout eternity. [Refrain]
