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 God, the God of might:
Thy power is never-failing;
Thou safely leadest in the fight,
’Gainst every foe prevailing.

2 Thou art, O God, the God of truth:
Thy Word remains unshaken;
Thy justice and Thy righteousness
Have every stronghold taken.

3 Thou art, O God, the God of love:
Thy mercy is unending;
Thou guardest us with tender care,
Each day our souls defending.

4 Thou art, O God, the God of grace:
Though sin our hearts hath hardened,
Thy grace can wash away the stain,
And heaven receive us, pardoned.
