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.

Our Gracious God

Our gracious God sent the Savior

Author: Vernon H. Nelson (alt.)
Published in 1 hymnal

Representative Text

1 Our gracious God sent the Savior,
who, showing perfect behavior,
conquered each test and temptation,
by his death brought us salvation.

2 So to our God we sing praises,
who all our spirits upraises,
and we rejoice in the telling
of his dear grace in us dwelling.

3 Thanks to his love's wide outpouring
and to the Spirit's imploring,
joy in our hearts is abiding,
suff'ring and pain are subsiding.
