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.

في مكان مرهوب في ظلال الغروب

Representative Text

1- في مكان مرهوب في ظلال الغروب
أرى ظل صليب منصوب
على صليب العار سال الدم أنهار
دم فادينا يسوع البار

سأقدس صليب العار
حتى ألتقي مع الأبرار
فينزعه يسوع البار
ويعطيني إكليل الفخار

2- وصليب الهوان مزدرى ومهان
هو لي رجاء وأمان
فعلى ذا الصليب مات عني الحبيب
واهبا خلاصه العجيب

3- في صليب المسيح أرى حبًا صحيح
نبع من جنبه الجريح
فعليه يسوع قبل بالخضوع
أن يمات من أجل الجموع
