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.

الجالسون في سجون الظلام

Tune: [A ruler once came to Jesus by night]

Representative Text

1 الجالسون في سجون الظلامْ
ينتظرون الموت إذ لا سلامْ
مقامهم في الذل أدنى مقامْ
لأنهم عصاهْ

مراحم الإله
شملت العصاهْ
في ضيقهم خلصَ الذي رجاهْ

أذَلّهم فعثروا لا معينْ
لأنهم طغاهْ

3 فصرخوا في ضيقهم للرحيمْ
خلصهم من كل كربٍ أليمْ
أنقذهم رب السماء العظيمْ
فليحمدوا الإلهْ
