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 Show us Thy way, O Lord, show us Thy way,
Alone we cannot go, for we would stray,
Thy way is always bright,
Thy path is always right,
Keep us by Thy great might,
O Lord divine.

2 Show us Thy way, O Lord, show us Thy way,
We’ll follow none but Thee, cost what it may,
Our way would lead us down,
Our way is always wrong,
Then lead us, is our song,
O Lord divine.

3 Show us Thy way, O Lord, show us Thy way,
Our God we’ll trust but Thee, hear while we pray,
Purge us from ev’ry sin,
Cleanse us, without, within
Make us completely clean,
O Lord divine.

4 Show us Thy way, O Lord, show us Thy way,
Brighter the pathway glows, as we obey,
When Thou dost call us home,
Grant us Thy glad “Well done,”
And praise be Thine alone,
O Lord divine.
