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 study of God’s word reveals
The way to our eternal King;
Whose hand created heav’n and earth,
And of Whose pow’r we tell and sing;
Each precious promise fills the heart
With inspirations from above,
Awakening hopes and holy thoughts
Of that bright land where all is love.

2 The study of God’s word invites
The weary, wand’ring, doubting one
To follow God in that new life,
Procured for us through His dear Son;
It tells of grace and “Love divine,”
Of endless blessings rich and free,
Of living streams and pastures green,
Where Jesus reigns eternally.

3 The study of God’s word imparts
A comfort and a restful peace;
A shining light that leads the way
To joys that nevermore shall cease;
A lasting strength that never fails,
When we approach the coming foe;
A Rock, on which our feet can stand,
In every conflict here below.

4 The study of god’s word foretells
The glory of that golden shore,
Where “Heav’nly hosts” in triumph sing
And praise their King forevermore.
It warns us of the wrath to come
For those who never seek their Lord,
It bids us trust in God alone,
“And take Him at His promised word.”
