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.

على جبين المفتدي

Representative Text

1 على جبينِ المفتدي
يبدو سنا الجمالْ
ورأسُهُ مكلَّلٌ
بالمجدِ والجلالْ

2 وفيضُ نعمةٍ يُرى
في ثغرِهِ المنيرْ
فما له بين الورى
أو في السما نظيرْ

3 لما رأى الإنسانَ في
بحرِ الردى قد غاصْ
دنا إليه مسرعاً
بنعمةِ الخلاصْ

4 قد صار عني فديةً
مُخلصي الحبيبْ
إذ مات عني رافعاً
إثمي على الصليبْ

5 شكراً لمحيي عبدِهِ
ومصدرِ النصرِ
إذ حُزتُ مِن نعمتِهِ
نصراً على القبرِ

6 يُمناهُ تهديني إلى
منازلِ المجدِ
فمُهجتي أُهدي لهُ
وكلَّ ما عندي
