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.

Thus spoke the Saviour of the world

Thus spoke the Saviour of the world

Published in 1 hymnal

Representative Text

Thus spoke the Saviour of the world
and raised his eyes to heav’n:
To thee, O Father! Lord of all,
eternal praise be giv’n.

Thou to the pure and lowly heart
hast heav’nly truth revealed;
Which from the self-conceited mind
thy wisdom hath concealed.

Ev’n so! thou, Father, hast ordained
thy high decree to stand;
Nor men nor angels may presume
the reason to demand.

Thou only know’st the Son: from thee
my kingdom I receive;
And none the Father know but they
who in the Son believe.

Come then to me, all ye who groan,
with guilt and fears opprest;
Resign to me the willing heart,
and I will give you rest.

Take up my yoke, and learn of me
the meek and lowly mind;
And thus your weary troubled souls
repose and peace shall find.

For light and gentle is my yoke;
the burden I impose
Shall ease the heart, which groaned before
beneath a load of woes.
