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.

فرحت إذ دعاني

Representative Text

1 فرحتُ إذ دعاني
أحبابُ بيت اللهْ
هيا بلا تواني
نُقدّم الصلاهْ
في داركِ القُدسيهْ
نقف يا صِهيونْ
جماعةً مفديهْ

مدينةٌ محميهْ
حصَّنها اتصالْ

3 لها اسألوا سلاماً
وكل بُرجٍ قاما
ومنزلٍ فيها
لك لأجل صحبي
ألتمسُ السلامْ
من أجل بيت ربي
أرجو لكِ الإنعامْ
