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.

Representative Text

1 Over my spirit, silently musing,
Came a sweet message, peaceful, divine;
Tranquilly stealing, slowly repeating,
I have redeem'd thee and thou art mine.

Refrain:
Thou hast redeemed me, wonderful Saviour,
Under Thy watch-care still would I be;
Tenderly fold me, lovingly hold me;
Hiding forever my soul in Thee.

2 Rich are the blessings Thou art bestowing,
Bountiful Shepherd, Saviour divine;
I shall not weary, walking beside Thee,
Thou hast redeem'd me, my life is Thine. [Refrain]

3 Green are the pastures, cool are the waters,
Where at the noontide oft I recline;
How shall I thank Thee, how shall I praise Thee?
Thou hast redeem'd me, my life is Thine. [Refrain]
