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 Sweetest word of Jesus,
To the troubled heart,
Soothing care and sorrow,
Making fear depart;
Like a benediction,
Bidding turmoil cease,
Comes the Saviour’s blessed word,
“Peace, I give you peace.”

Refrain:
Word of words the sweetest,
‘Twas the angels’ strain,
When the heavn’ly chorus
Sang o’er Bethlehem’s plain.
Peace on earth from heaven,
May it e’er increase,
Till all hearts shall own its sway,
Peace, most blessed peace.

2 On the cross of Calv’ry,
Peace for us was made;
For a world’s redemption,
Great the price He paid.
Now from Satan’s bondage,
Giving glad release,
Comes the Saviour’s blessed word,
“Peace, I give you peace.” [Refrain]

3 Hear the blessed message,
Do not slight His call,—
While the Saviour offers
Pardon free to all.
Speed the good news ever,
Let it never cease,
Till all hearts shall hear the word,
“Peace, I give you peace.” [Refrain]
