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.

أيها السياح قولوا

Representative Text

1 - أيها السياح قولوا
أين أنتم ذاهبونْ
نحن في الأسفار نسعى
نحو فادينا الحنون
فوق سهل وجبالٍ
صوب أفراحِ الخلودْ
حيث في الفردوس نجني
كل أثمار الوعود

2 - أيها السائح ماذا
أنت راجٍ في النعيم
تاج مجد ذا بهاءٍ
من يد الفادي الكريم
والثيابَ البيضَ تكسو
كل من نال الفداء
حيث نهر الروض صافٍ
يرتوي منه الظِّماء

3 - أيها السياح هلا
تصحبونا في الرحيل
أقبلوا يا قوم أهلا
أقبلوا نحو السبيل
أقبلوا أهلاً وسهلا
إنَّ فادينا يقول
أيها القوم تعالَوا
نحو مجد لا يزولْ
