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 Wo ist ein solcher Gott wie Du,
voll Langmut, Macht und Gnade!
Führst Sünder ein in Deine Ruh'
von des Verderbens Pfade.
Durchdrangst mit Macht

den Sohn im Tod erblassen.

ward uns im Sohn gegeben.

3 Wo ist ein solcher Gott wie Du,
so treu in jeder Lage!
Wer hilft in Not, wer sorgt wie Du
ohn' Rast von Tag zu Tage!
O treuer Hort,
laß hier wie dort
von Deiner Lieb' uns singen,
Lob, Ehr' und Dank Dir bringen!
