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. When my heart is sore oppressed,
And I seek in vain for rest,
This my daily prayer shall be,
Draw me nearer, Lord, to Thee.

Refrain
Hide me, Oh, my Savior, hide me,
’Till the storm of life is past;
Safe inside the haven guide me,
Oh, receive my soul at last.

2. In temptation’s trying hour,
When I feel the tempter’s power,
Near me then, O Lord, abide,
Strengthen me, and be my guide. [Refrain]

3. When my day of life is o’er,
And I tremble on the shore
Of the dark and unknown sea,
Then, O Lord, my comfort be. [Refrain]
