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. The Bible of our fathers
Is the blessèd Word of God,
Its pages are inspirèd—
By its light our fathers trod.

Refrain
The Bible of our fathers is the book for me,
The Bible of our fathers, let it ever be;
The Bible of our fathers is good enough for me,
The Bible of our fathers, our hope eternally.

2. The Bible of our fathers:
Its great promises are true,
They never fail believers;
Trust, its Gospel will save you! [Refrain]

3. The Bible of our fathers,
Though attacked without, within,
Is still rejoicing millions
It is saving from their sin. [Refrain]

4. The Bible of our fathers,
Only those who preach it whole
Are reaching dying sinners,
Bringing peace to the lost soul.
Refrain

5. The Bible of our fathers,
In the judgment day will be
The only book remaining,
Save the book of life we’ll see.
Refrain
