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.

حالا تعالوا إلى المسيح

Representative Text

1 - حالاً تعالَوا إلى المسيحْ
يا مَن تعِبتُمْ بحِملِكمْ
فهْو الذي لطفُهُ يُريحْ
مَن حِملُه ثقيلْ

كلُّ مَن يتخِذُ المسيحْ
ملجأً لهُ فيستريحْ
يحيا سعيداً مُزَيَّناً
ببرِّهِ الجليلْ

2 - الربُّ قد قالَ أقبِلوا
إليَّ إني مُريحُكُمْ
فأسرِعوا كي تُظَلَّلوا
بظِلِّهِ الظَّليلْ

3 - بدمِهِ تشتَفي الخُطاهْ
وقربُهُ مَرتَعُ الهنا
وعندَه مورِدُ الحياهْ
يُروَى به الغليلْ
