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 stormy winds may blow,
And with fury lash life’s sea;
There’s peace within my soul tonight.
For my Savior dwells with me.

He will bring thee peace and comfort,
Sailor, on a stormy sea;
Do you hope to reach the haven?
Does thy Savior pilot thee?

2. How sad to drift alone,
Tossed by every passing wave!
There is a pilot, sin sick soul;
Christ alone thy bark can save. [Refrain]

3. A voice says, Peace, be still,
And sweet rest comes into life;
No longer left to fight alone,
He will guide thee through the strife. [Refrain]
