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 O blessèd lights along the shore,
O blessèd coming aid,
I hear above the tempest’s roar,
Thy voice, Be not dismayed.

O beauteous lights along the shore,
Or stars or beacons fair,
We bless your beams, and yield no more
To billows of despair.

2 Soon trials will no more distress,
Our suffering will be passed;
God will His faithful children bless,
And shelter from the blast. [Refrain]

3 O glorious lights that flash afar,
Sweet messages of love,
That sound above earth’s din and jar,
There’s rest and peace above. [Refrain]

4 Though storms be long and streams be deep,
Faith, hope, ne’er, ne’er give o’er;
Almighty power will ever keep
Lights on the heavenly shore. [Refrain]
