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.

O Lord, I call to you

O Lord, I call to you

Tune: [O Lord, I call to you]
Published in 1 hymnal

Representative Text

Let my prayer arise before you,
arise before you like incense.

1 O Lord, I call to you; come to me quickly;
hear my voice when I cry to you.

2 Let my prayer rise before you as incense],
the lifting up of my hands as the evening sacrifice. [Refrain]

3 Set a watch before my mouth, O Lord,
and guard the door of my lips.

4 Let not my heart incline to any evil thing;
let me not be occupied in wickedness with evildoers.

5 But my eyes are turned to you, Lord god;
in you I take refuge; strip me not of my life. [Refrain]
