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.

Representative Text

1 برحمة وبرٍّ
أهتف يا عظيمْ
بتسبِحاتِ شُكرٍ
أسبحُ الكريمْ

2 متى إليَّ تأتي
يا صاحب الجلالْ
أسلُك وسط بيتي
في طرُق الكمالْ

3 أبعدتُ كل شرٍّ
والزَّيغَ أبغضتُ

4 وأطردُ النمّاما

5 أُجالِس الأفاضلْ
والأتقيا الأطهارْ
يخدم عندي الكاملْ
والأُمَنا الأبرارْ

6 أطرد من قدامي
مُخادعاً أثيمْ
ولا يُرى أمامي
مُنافقٌ ذميمْ

7 فتطهُرُ الأراضي
والبرُّ ينتشرْ
والشعبُ يبقى راضي
للحق ينتصرْ
