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.

I am a child of God;
Heaven’s golden light over me is streaming,

I am a child of God,
I am a child of God;

Through the tests of life I have peace from heaven,
I am a child of God. [Refrain]
