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 Within Thy temple, Lord,
We think on mercies past;
Let earth all praise accord,
Long as Thy Name shall last;
The righteous judgments of her King
Let Zion and her daughters sing.

2 About Mount Zion go,
Her towers and ramparts tell;
That ye her strength may know,
Mark her defenses well;
Her royal palaces behold
That ye her glories may unfold.

3 To all the coming race
Repeat the message o'er:
This mighty God of grace
Is ours for evermore;
Yea,He our Savior will abide,
And unto death will be our guide.

The Psalter: with responsive readings, 1912
