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.

هل كل ذا عني أنا

Representative Text

1 - هل كل ذا عني أنا
قاسى المسيحُ بالعنا
تخلى عن عرشِ السما
فذاقَ عني الألما

عني أنا – نعم عني
حبه لي سامٍ عجيبْ
يشدو به تَرَنُّمي
إذ قد فداني بالصليبْ

2 - هل لي أنا قال المسيحْ
أقبلْ يا أيها جريحْ
أسند هنا الرأسَ الكليلْ
وألقِ حملَك الثقيلْ

3 هل ذرف الدمع السخينْ
مصارعاً حتى الأنينْ
عني أنا في جثسيمان
هل عني قاسى ذا الهوانْ

4 - هل رأسَهُ عني حَنَى
وقاسى كل ذا الضني
عني الفِداءَ تمَّما
مُعطي السلامَ مُنعِما
