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 let me seek that path, where winds of woe,
And storms of sin and wrath, can never blow!
The star of heavenly hope, has ever beamed
Along the way cast up, for the redeemed.

2 It is a blissful way, safe and secure;
Leading to realms of day, a pathway sure.
All other paths we tread, through this dark clime,
Must be with fears o’erspread, with cares of time.

3 But O! this holy way, the vulture’s eye,
The hideous beasts of prey, shall ne’er descry.
Then let me seek the path, where winds of woe,
And bitter storms of wrath can never blow.
