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.

إن جود الله يدعو للسرور

Representative Text

1 - إن جودَ الله يدعو للسرورْ
زمنَ الخير وفي وقت الشرورْ
فمتى أمسَتْ رحى البلوى تدورْ
بركاتِ الربِّ عدِّد شاكرا

بركات الرب عدد شاكرا
واعترفْ بالجود حتى في العناء
كل صبحٍ ومساءٍ ذاكرا
جودَه السامي بحمدٍ وثناءْ

2 - في ليالي الفقرِ والهم الأليمْ
وزمان الضيقِ والخوفَ العظيمْ
واضطرامِ البُغض والجَور الذميمْ
بركات الرب عدد شاكرا

3 - في شديد الحزن والغمِّ المذيبْ
وسقامِ الجسمِ والعجزِ المريبْ
وظلام اليأس والهول المشيب
بركات الرب عدد شاكرا

4 - ليستِ الرفعة حرزاً من شقاءْ
لا ولا الأموالُ كنزاً ذا بقاءْ
فلأن في التُقَى خيرَ الغَنَاءْ
بركات الرب عدد شاكرا
