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 Weak and sinful tho’ we are,
This glorious hope we hold
Jesus will not leave His lambs
Outside the fold.
Outside the fold, outside the fold,
Jesus will not leave His lambs
Outside the fold.

2 Tho’ we often lose our way,
In darkest night and cold,
Jesus will not let us stay
Outside the fold.
Outside the fold, outside the fold,
Jesus will not let us stay
Outside the fold.

3 He will save us from our sin,
And all its dread alarms,
He will keep us safe within
His loving arms.
Safe in His arms, safe in His arms,
He will keep us safe within
His loving arms.
