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. Thou art, O Christ, the light and life
Of all my soul’s aspiring hope,
Without that life in daily strife
I could not dare with sin to cope.

2. I have not strength to stand alone,
When storms of doubt and fears assail;
But Thou, yea, Thou, and Thou alone
Must o’er my doubts and fears prevail.

3. I have not courage to resist,
When Satan’s hosts attack me sore;
I must on Thee alone subsist,
Till sin and sorrow reign no more.

4. And when, in that bright realm above,
I see Thee ever face to face,
I’ll breathe the fragrance of Thy love,
I’ll sing the wonder of Thy grace.
