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.

لا تغض الطرف عني

Representative Text

1 - لا تغُضَّ الطرْفَ عني
أيها الفادي
أعطني حين أصلي
نور إرشادِ

يا مُنَجي
أنت سُلواني
ثغرك البسّام يشفي
ضَعف إيماني

2 - سائلٌ نُعماك يلقى
يا أبا الرحمهْ
مِن لَدُن عرشِك حالا
وافرَ النعمهْ

3 - إنما جُلُّ مُرادي
وجهُك الوضاح
فاشف جُرحي بالحشا يا
مُنيةَ الأرواح

4 - أنت يا نبعَ سروري
معدِنُ الألطاف
أنت لي خير نصيبِ
يا سني الأوصاف
