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 كشوق الغزالِ لمجرى المياهْ
إليك إلهي اشتياقي عظيمْ
عطِشتُ إلى الحيِّ رب الحياهْ
وقلبي لبيت العلي يهيمْ

لماذا الأنينْ
أيا نفسُ ربك ربٌّ معينْ

2 دموعي تسيلُ بطول الزمانْ
وصارت طعامي ليلَ نهارْ
لأن العدوَّ لنفسي أهانْ
يقوله أين إلهك سارْ

3 ونفسي تئن بحزن عظيمْ
لذكرى مسيري لبيت الإلهْ
بأهلي وصَحبي وخلي الكريمْ
نُغني بحمدٍ لرب الحياهْ

4 أيا نفسي قومي لماذا الأنينْ
ترَجّي إلهَك منه النجاهْ
لأني لأجل الخلاص الثمينْ
أُسبح ربي بطول الحياهْ
