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.

إله تسبيحي استجب

Representative Text

1 إلهَ تسبيحي استجبْ
وقم إلى معونتي
خلص حياتي وافدني
من طالبي أذيتي
بالغش قد تكلموا
ضدي بقول كذِبِ
وقاتلوني حسداً
بدون أدنى سببِ

2 عليّ شراً وضعوا
بدلَ حبي والسلامْ
أنا أصلي دائماً
وهم دوماً في خِصامْ
لذا العلي يتركُهُ
في شره عبداً أثيمْ
عند القضاء ضدهُ
يخرجُ مُذنباً عظيمْ

3 صلاته خطيةٌ
تكون عند ربنا
يأتي سريعاً يومهُ
يصير حالاً للفنا
كذا وظيفةٌ له
تُعطى لآخرٍ سواهْ
بنوه مع زوجتهِ
يُمررون في الحياهْ

4 ومالُه للغرَبا
وللمرابي سيصيرْ
ولا يكون مُشفقٌ
على بنيه أو مُجيرْ
يُمحى اسمه ونسلهُ
فليس يوماً يُذكرُ
وذنبُ آباءِ لهُ
لدى العلي لا يُسترُ

5 ذا كله يصيبهُ
من أجل شره العظيمْ
وليس مَن يرحمهُ
إذ لم يكن يوماً رحيمْ
هو أحب لعنةً
لذا عليه قد أتتْ
هذا جزاءُ مبغِضي
من عند ربي قد ثبتْ
