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.

أحيا لربي حياة الوفاء

أحيا لربي حياة الوفاء

Representative Text

1- أحيا لربي حياةَ الوفاء
على الدوامِ أرومُ رضاه
للفادي أرفعُ كلَّ الولاء
فأحظى مِنهُ بمجدِ سناه

فيا يسوعُ ربي نفسي لك وقفتْ
لأنك بالصلبِ حياتك وهبتْ
نبذتُ ما عداكَ فليس لي سواكْ
املك ربي على قلبي فأحيا في رضاكْ

2- أحيا لمن ذاقَ المرَّ المذيب
وبالصليبِ أزالَ الآثام
أجيبُ نداءَ الحبِّ العجيب
مكرسا قلبيَ بالتمام

3- أحيا لربي في هذي الحياه
رضاهُ عن شخصيِ كَنزي الثمين
أسعى لربح نفوس الخطاه
ليستريحَ المتعبُ المسكين

Thomas O. Chisholm was born in Franklin, Kentucky in 1866. His boyhood was spent ona farm and in teaching district schools. He spent five years as editor of the local paper at Franklin. He was converted to Christianity at the age of 26 and soon after was business manager and office editor of the "Pentecostal Hearld" or Louisville, Ky. In 1903 he entered the ministry of the M. E. Church South. His aim in writing was to incorporate as much as Scripture as possible and to avoid flippant or sentimental themes.
