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.
So, before you close this box and move on to use the many resources on Hymnary.org,

And to read more about big plans for Hymnary, see
To Thee in whom we live and move,
And have our being here,
A higher, holier state to prove,
Through Christ let us draw near.
Though born in sin, to trouble born,
Transgressors from the womb,
Leave not thine offspring thus forlorn,
In error, doubt, and gloom.
Send out, good Lord, Thy light and truth,
Through each advancing stage,
To guard in childbood, guide in youth,
And comfort us in age.
Darkness for light may we not choose,
For falsehood truth forego,
Nor things that are eternal lose
For vanities below.
Teach us to number so our days,
That we our hearts apply
To walk in Wisdom's pleasant ways,
In them to live and die.
Living, prepared with every breath
Our spirits to resign;
Dying, lay hold on life in death,
And so be ever Thine,
