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.

Representative Text

1 جدتَ بالخير علينا
رب حسب وعدكا
أعطني ذوقاً سليماً

ذاك كي أزداد فَهماً
في كلامك الكريمْ

6 شرعك اللهم أغلى
من ألوفٍ من ذهبْ
وهو لي ربحٌ جزيلٌ
وكنوزٌ تُكتَسبْ
