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 Lord and Savior, we recline
On that eternal love of Thine;
Thou art our rest, and Thou alone
Remainest when all else is gone.

2. Yes! Thou remainest: sea and land
E’en Heav’n shall pass, but Thou shalt stand;
Undimmed, Thy radiancy appears,
Changeless thro’ all the changing years.

3. Lord, on the throne Thy love’s the same
As once upon Thy cross of shame;
In lowliness Thou cam’st to die,
Thou livest now for us on high.

4. We see Thee there, the Lamb once slain;
Thy loss was our eternal gain;
We see Thee crowned with glory now,
No shade on Thy victorious brow.

5. The shadow dwelt on Calv’ry’s tree,
And now Thine unveiled face we see;
Praise be to God for that blest word,
That Thou remainest, blessèd Lord.
