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 God, be merciful to me,
For men no mercy show;
With constant warfare pressing me
They seek my overthrow.

2 When foes invade, I safely rest,
Confiding in thy word;
I will not dread what man can do,
My trust is in the Lord.

3 I take Thy vows upon me now,
O God, Who savest me;
the sacrifice of praise I bring
In gratitude to Thee.

4 My feet from falling and my soul
From death Thy hast restored,
And ever in the light of life
I walk before the Lord.

The Psalter: with responsive readings, 1912
