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 tempests of sorrow arise,
And the storm-cloud still heavily rolls,
A rainbow bends over the skies—
“In you patience possess ye your souls!”

Refrain:
Then with faith and with hope,
Let us patiently wait, let us patiently wait for the Lord;
He will guide, He will save,
If we fearlessly trust, if we fearlessly trust in His word!

2 When threatening foes shall assail,
Let us never give way to a fear;
He’ll suffer no ill to prevail
If we earnestly seek Him in prayer. [Refrain]

3 Then calmly we’ll keep on our way,
For the hand of our Saviour controls;
He sends us the message today—
“In your patience possess ye your souls!” [Refrain]
