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. Sweet is the breath of morning air;
Sweet is the dawn, when skies are fair;
Sweeter by far than aught beside
In God’s own favor to abide.

2. Blest be the gracious power above
For all our rest, and all His love;
For health preserved, for strength retained,
For faith renewed, and hope regained.

3. Wake, and the song of joy up-raise;
Wake, and resound Jehovah’s praise;
Praise ye the God of death and night;
Praise ye the Lord of life and light!

4. O, let Thy watchful care, dear Lord,
Direct each deed, and mold each word;
Check every thought that turns astray;
And guide and guard us through the day.
