The day I lost my sight,
I could no more see you, my love,
Still God is in the remnant.

The day I can not hear
Your lovely voice reveal your thoughts,
Yet God is in the remnant.

The day I can not move
My lips to speak my love to you,
Still God is in the remnant.

The day I lose my memory,
And all the times we shared are gone,
Yet God is in the remnant.

The day I don’t know you,
And can not find my love in life,
Still God is in the remnant,
And you are by His side.

Dear Reader,

Your charitable support for First Things is urgently needed before the clock above hits zero.

First Things is proud to be a reader-supported enterprise, and the Spring Campaign is one of only two major reader giving drives each year. It ends on June 30 at 11:59 p.m.

Your gift will fortify First Things to speak boldly on behalf of religious voices in the public square ahead of a pivotal season for our nation and the church.

Please give now.
