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.

حين أرى صليب من

Representative Text

1 - حين أرى صليبَ مَنْ
قضى فحازَ الانتصارْ
رِبحي أرى خِسَارةً
وكلَّ مجدِ الكونِ عارْ

2 - يا ربِّ لا تسمحْ بأنْ
أفخرَ إلا بالصليبْ
مُكَرِّساً نفسي وما
أملِك للفادي الحبيبْ

3 - مِن رأسِهِ وكفِّهِ
وجنبِهِ وقدمِهْ

والحبِّ أيضاً معْ دمِهْ

4 - أيُّ دمٍ زاكٍ جرى
كدمِه الزاكي الثمينْ
وأيُّ تاجٍ مثلُ تا
جِ الشوك أحيا العالمينْ

5 - بم أُكافي مُنقذي
مِن سُلطةِ الخطيةِ
إلا بتكريسي لهُ
نفسي وكلَّ قُوتي
