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.

Oh! My Soul! Bless Thou Jehovah

Representative Text

1 Oh! my soul, bless thou Jehovah!
God of love and grace art Thou;
Thou alone art wise and holy;
At Thy feet I humbly bow.

2 Thou Thy Son hast freely given
All our sins to bear away;
On the cross He made atonement,
Then to glory led the way.

3 He for us received the Spirit,
Precious gift of love divine,
Sheds Him forth upon Thy children;
Now forever He is mine.

4 Jesus soon again returneth!
Evermore with Him I’ll be,
Like Him through the endless ages,
Saved for all eternity.
