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.

Thee, Lord, our God, we praise

Thee, Lord, our God, we praise

Published in 3 hymnals

Representative Text

1 Thee Lord, our God, we praise,
To Thee, God, thanks we raise,
All the earth doth worship Thee,
Father in eternity;
All angels and the heavenly host
Vying who may praise Thee most.
All Cherubim and Seraphim,
Ever tuning the lofty hymn:
"Holy art Thou, our God!
Holy art Thou, our God!
Holy art Thou, our God!
Jehovah Saboath!"

2 Thy glorious power and mighty name
Rise over heaven and nature's frame.
The holy twelve Apostles all,
The Prophets Thou of old didst call,
The martyrs goodly company--
Send up their hymns of praise to Thee.
All Christendom with one accord
Exalt and praise their common Lord--
Thee, Father, on Thy lofty throne,
Thy well-beloved, Only Son,
The Holy Ghost, the Comforter,
They praise and honor evermore.

3 O Christ, to Thee, the glorious King,
Eternal Son of God, we sing.
To save our race from sin forlorn
Thou camest, of chaste virgin born;
Thou didst endure death's sharpest pain,
And open heaven for us again.
As equal there at God's right hand
Thou sittest in supreme command.
Thou, our exalted risen Head,
Wilt be the Judge of quick and dead.

4 Now help us, Lord, Thy servants here,
Whom Thou hast saved with blood so dear,
Let us have portion with the blest
In Thine eternal, glorious rest.
Lord Jesus, bless Thine heritage,
And shield Thy fold from age to age.
Protect and nurse Thine own with care,
Then let them endlessly glory share.

5 Daily, our God, we'll sing Thy praise,
And bless Thy name throughout our days.
Keep us, O Lord, throughout this day
From sin and every evil way:
Have mercy upon us, O Lord;
In all our need Thy grace afford;
Thy mercy unto us e'er show,
It is our only hope below.
Dear Lord! our hopes all rest in Thee,
Oh! let us ne'er confounded be. Amen!
