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.

فادي الورى يدعوك

فادي الورى يدعوك

Representative Text

1 - فادي الورى يدعوكَ
قُلْ ها أنا
ونورُه يهديكَ
باهي السنا
العمرُ كالخيالِ
إذ يعبُرُ
وأنت في ضلالِ
لا تُبصِرُ

2 - يا مهملَ الخلاصِ
لبِّ الحملْ
ويلَك من قِصاصِ
لا يُحتملْ
فموعدُ الحسابِ
دانٍ قريبْ
فاهرُبْ منَ العقابِ
إلى الحبيبْ

3 – مجداً له تعالى
ربٌّ غفورْ
كم تائبٍ قد نالا
محوَ الشرورْ
أنت غريقُ اليأسِ
ترجو النجاهْ
أسرِعْ فروحُ القُدسِ
يدعو الخطاهْ

Author: William Ellsworth Witter

Witter, Will Ellsworth, was born Dec. 9, 1854, near La Grange, New York, and educated at the Genessee State Normal School, New York, and the University of Rochester. From the latter he passed in 1880 to the Rochester Baptist Theological Seminary, and in 1884 he entered the Baptist Ministry. He has written several songs and poems, one of which:— While Jesus whispers to you (The Divine Call) has come into somewhat prominent use. It was written in July 1878, and originated mainly in the great anxiety of the author respecting two of his pupils. In 1878 it was set to music by H. R. Palmer, and included in his Book of Anthems, 1878: from whence it passed into Good as Gold, and I. D. Sankey's Sacred Songs and Solos, London 1881.… Go to person page >
