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 Triune God, thy blessing great

Representative Text

1 O Triune God, Thy blessing great
Rest on our households, Church and State,
And all the godly work and worth,
That flows from them to bless the earth.

2 Bless Thou our household praise and prayer,
And sanctify domestic care;
To hearths and homes grant Thou Thy grace,
That home become a hallowed place.

3 Bless us with schools wherein are led
Thy lambs on pastures green, and fed
With bread of life, so freely given,
That they be reared as heirs of heaven.

4 Bless Thou the Word to young and old;
Bless, Lord, the Church, Thy chosen fold,
And him who cares in heavenly things,
To us and ours Thy blessing brings.
