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.

ليس لنا ليس لنا

Representative Text

1 ليس لنا ليس لنا
يا ربنا الكريمْ
لكنَّ لاسمك العلي
مجِّد أيا عظيمْ
من أجل رحمتك قمْ
يا أيها الرحمانْ
وبأمانتك عدْ
عظِّم لنا الإحسانْ

2 كيف تقول أممٌ
أين إلههمْ
وفي السما إلهنا
تخزى شفاههمْ
إلهنا مُعظَّمٌ
يسود في العلاءْ
بقوةٍ وحكمةٍ
يصنع ما يشاءْ

3 أصنامهم باطلةٌ
عمل أيدي الناسْ
من فضة وذهبٍ
عديمةُ الحواسْ
يخزى الذي يصنعها
ومثلَها يكونْ
ومَن بها ثقتهمْ
للدهر يهلكونْ

4 يا شعبَ ربنا اتكلْ
على العلي القديرْ
فهو معينٌ منقذٌ
لكل مُستجيرْ
كذاك يا خدَّامَهُ
وكلَّ أتقياهْ
اعتمدوا واتكلوا
عليه لا سواهْ
