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.

حرب لها اضطرام

Representative Text

1 - حربٌ لها اضطرامُ
ما دمتُ في الدنيا
في الربِّ لي سلامُ
ومُنيتي القُصوَى
يسوعُ لي مِقدامُ
لا أرهبُ البَلوى
للمؤمنِ استخدامُ
في دارِه العُلـيا

2 - إن تهجُمِ الجنودُ
في حَوْمَةِ الـمَيدانْ
أو تقصِفُ الرعودُ
أو تُضرَمُ النيرانْ
أرَ العِدى تعودُ
بالذلِّ والخُسرانْ
فلا يُرى مفقودُ
من عسكرِ الرحمانْ

3 - يا جندَ ربي قاتِلْ
بالسيفِ والدروعْ
يا جندَ ربي الباسلْ
لا تخشَ ما يروعْ
تحتَ السلاحِ الكاملْ
حارِبْ معَ الجموعْ
تفُزْ بنصرٍ عاجِلْ
تحت لِوا يسوعْ

4 - هيا بنا استعِدّوا
لتِلكُمُ الدِّيارْ
حيث يحِلُّ المجدُ
في مجمعِ الأبرارْ
حيث المديحَ نشدو
بنغمةِ القيثارْ
حيث الثنا والحمدُ
للمَلِكِ القَهَّارْ
