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 Lord forever sits as king;
For judgment sets His throne;
In righteousness to judge the world,
And justice give each one.

2 So shall the Lord a refuge be
For those that are oppressed;
A refuge will He be for them,
What time they are distressed.

3 And they that know Thy name in Thee
Their confidence will place:
For Thou hast not forsaken them
That truly seek Thy face.

4 O sing ye praises to the Lord
That dwells in Zion hill;
Among the peoples everywhere
His deeds declare ye still.
