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.

The earth is yours, O God

Representative Text

1 The earth is yours, O God-
you nourish it with rain;
the streams and rivers overflow,
the land bears seed again.

2 The soil is yours, O God-
the shoots are moist with dew;
and ripened by the burning sun
the corn grows straight and true.

3 The hills are yours, O God-
their grass is lush and green,
providing pastures for the flocks
which everywhere are seen.

4 The whole rich land is yours
for fodder or for plough:
and so, for rain, sun, soil and seed,
O God, we thank you now.
