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.

لا تحسد الأشرار

Representative Text

1 لا تحسد الأشرارْ
كلا ولا الفجّارْ
أهلَ الشرورْ
فإنهم فانونْ
كالعشب يُقطَعونْ
في الحال يذبلونْ
مثل الزهورْ

2 على العلي اعتمِدْ
واصبر ولا تحِدْ
عنِ الصلاحْ
وعش بلا خَصامْ
في الحق والسلامْ
فيضمنَ العلاّمْ
لك النجاحْ

3 وافرح بربكا
يُعطيك سؤلكا
سلم له الأمورْ
فينظرَ الجمهورْ
برَّك مثل النورْ

4 لربك انتظرْ
وللعلي اصطبِرْ
في كل حينْ
للوُدعا السلامْ
وكثرةُ الأيامْ
والسعدُ والإنعامْ
مدى السنينْ

5 يفكر الأشرارْ
ضد التقيِ البارْ
الرب في سماهْ
يهزأُ بالخُطاهْ
يحمي مَن اتَّقاهْ
