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 was given
That lost men may know
The way into heaven,
And shun hell below.
It does not deceive us;
Is faithful to tell
Of sin, death, and judgment,
And torments of hell.

No word ever spoken
By God to his own
Was ever yet broken;
‘Tis firm as his throne.

2 It then points to Jesus,
Redeemer of all,
The mighty who frees us
From curse of the fall. [Refrain]

3 It shows us our duty
To God and to man
In words of great beauty,
And know them all can. [Refrain]

4 It tells us of heaven,
The home of the soul,
And crowns to be given,
While ages shall roll.
Oh, heaven-born treasure!
We would have the more,
In fulness of measure
And richness of store. [Refrain]
