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.

1 O the blessings we receive,
When on Jesus we believe,
And are walking in the Spirit day by day;
When His word is our delight,
And our path is growing bright,
While by faith we learn to trust Him and obey.

Refrain:
O praise the Lord, for He is good;
O praise the Lord, our God above,
For He keeps us every hour,
And upholds us by His pow’r,
While we dwell within the sunshine of His love.

2 Precious blessings shall descend,
When before His throne we bend,
And the glory-cloud is resting o’er us there;
Every heart with joy is fill’d,
Every wave of sorrow still’d,
While we feel the hallow’d bliss of answer’d pray’r. [Refrain]

3 When the world is overcome,
And its battles fought and won,
When we see our Lord and Saviour in the sky;
How our hearts will overflow,
With the rapture we shall know,
When we meet Him in His kingdom by and by. [Refrain]
