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.

Submissively, my God

Submissively, my God

Author: Thomas Haweis
Published in 13 hymnals

Representative Text

1 Submissively, my God,
I all to thee resign,
And bow before thy chast'ning rod;
Nor will I, Lord, repine.

2 Why should my heart complain,
When wisdom, truth, and love
Direct the stroke, inflict the pain,
And point to joys above?

3 How short my suff'rings here!
How needful every cross!
Away with doubt, distrust, and fear,
Nor call my gain my loss.

4 Then give, or take away,
I'll bless thy sacred Name:
Jesus to-day, and yesterday,
And ever, is the same.
