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.

أقبل إلى الفادي

Representative Text

1 - أقبِلْ إلى الفادي
يا أيها الضعيفْ
فالقُوةُ العُظمى
بعونِهِ اللَّطيفْ

مُفتدي الأنامْ
قد محا الآثامْ
جاعلاً قِرمِزَها
كالثلجِ في الأعلامْ

2 - إنَّ دمَ الفادي
يُغَسِّلُ الذنوبْ
وروحَه القُدسي
يُطهِّرُ القلوبْ

3 - من مات عن إثمي
صليبُهُ فَخري
إذ ليس لي برٌّ
فموتُهُ بِرّي

4 - ألقاهُ حينما
يأتي من السماءْ
إليه أرتقي
في قُبَّةِ الهواءْ

5 - في مجدِهِ الأعلى
أكون كلَّ حينْ
إذ قد محا إثمي
بدمِه الثمينْ

Author: Elvina M. Hall

Hall, Elvina Mable, was born at Alexandria, Virginia, in 1818; and was married, first to Mr. Richard Hall, and then, in 1885, to the Rev. Thomas Myers. Her hymn, "I hear the Saviour say" (Christ All and in All), in I. D. Sankey's Sacred Songs and Solos, 1878, is somewhat popular in Great Britain and America. It was "written on the fly-leaf of the New Lute of Zion, in the choir of the Methodist Episcopal Church, Baltimore, in the spring of 1865." --John Julian, Dictionary of Hymnology, Appendix, Part II (1907)  Go to person page >
