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.

إهد نفسي يا يسوع

Representative Text

1 - إهدِ نفسي يا يسوعْ
عابراً وادي الدُّموعْ
في اضطراباتِ الحياهْ
أنت صخرٌ للنجاهْ
أنت هاديَّ النفوعْ
إهدِ نفسي يا يسوعْ

2 - لك عِزُّ واقتدارْ
مسكت موج البحارْ
تخضعُ الأنواءُ لكْ
والأراضي والفَلَكْ
يا مخلصَ الجموعْ
إهدِ نفسي يا يسوعْ

3 - حينما يدنو الخِتامْ
وأرى شطَّ السَّلامْ
إفتحِ الصدرَ الرحيبْ
واقْبَلَنِّي يا حبيبْ
وإلى تلك الربوعْ
إهدِ نفسي يا يسوعْ
