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 Thou Gentle Spirit

Representative Text

1 Oh, what a joyful assurance
The gentle Spirit brings!
Oh, let us honor and rev’rence
His name above all kings.

O Thou gentle Spirit,
Pure, sweet angel dove;
Live in my heart, ever cheer it
With tender words of love.

2 Sweet is the peaceful emotion
That fills my inmost soul;
Blissful and heavenly token,
That Jesus makes me whole. [Refrain]

3 Tranquilly resting in Jesus,
For I am now His own;
Sweet is the promise that greets us,
“I’ll leave thee not alone.” [Refrain]

4 I will adore thee forever;
Oh, live and reign in me!
Jesus, my Savior and keeper,
Oh, help me trust in Thee. [Refrain]
