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.

So, before you close this box and move on to use the many resources on Hymnary.org, please prayerfully consider whether you might be able to make a gift to support our work.

خلني قرب الصليب

Representative Text

1 - خلِّني قربَ الصليبْ
حيثُ سالَ المجرى
من دمِ الفادي الحبيبْ
داءُ نفسي يُبرا

في الصليبْ، في الصليبْ
راحتي بلْ فخري
في حياتي وكذا
بعدَ دفنِ القبرِ

2 - قد محا عندَ الصليبْ
دمُ ربي إثمي
وعنِ القلبِ الكئيبْ
زال كلُّ الهمِّ

3 - قد رأينا في الصليبْ
قوةَ الرَّحمانِ
إذ بدا أمرٌ عجيبْ
فديةٌ للجاني

4 - مَن قضى فوقَ الصليبْ
ذاك جلُّ القصدِ
سأراهُ عن قريبْ
فوقَ عرشِ المجدِ
