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.

So, before you close this box and move on to use the many resources on Hymnary.org, please prayerfully consider whether you might be able to make a gift to support our work.

ألا تعود فتحيينا

Representative Text

ألا تعود فتحيينا
وتبني ما انهدم فينا
فتملأ القلب بفرح
يزيل أحزان ماضينا

1) كم من عهود قطعناها
ثم بجهل نسيناها
أين محبتنا الأولى
هل سنعود ونحياها

2) كم من ثعالب وزوانِ
كم من هزائم وهوانِ
صارت حياتنا فارغة
ككلمات بلا معانِ

3) كم مرة نحن حاولنا
لكن كثيراً ما فشلنا
والآن نرفع أعيننا
إليك يا رب ارحمنا
