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 Rest in the Lord and patiently wait;
Believe on His word, His mercy is great;
Rest in His love and fear not, for He,
Tho’ dark be the hour, thy refuge shall be.

Refrain:
Rest in the Lord, and patiently wait,
Rest in the Lord, His mercy is great.

2 Rest in the Lord and grieve not, nor fret;
Thy works He’ll reward, He cannot forget;
Rest in His love and fear not, for He,
Tho’ dark be the hour, thy refuge shall be. [Refrain]

3 Rest in the Lord, He’ll calm all Thy fears;
He’ll bear all thy burdens, dry all thy tears;
Rest in His love and fear not, for He,
Tho’ dark be the hour, thy refuge shall be. [Refrain]
