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 star that shone o’er Bethlehem
Is shining now for me,
To guide my feet thro’ tangled paths,
Dear Savior, unto Thee.

Refrain:
O blessèd star, O radiant light
Shine on me from afar,
And guide me to my home above,
Where many mansions are.

2 Its rays are streaming from above,
Thro’ God’s own word so true;
They fill my soul with sweeter peace
Than sinners ever knew. [Refrain]

3 O may I like the men of old,
Be led, O star, by thee,
Until I reach my heavenly home,
And my Deliv’rer see. [Refrain]
