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.

لي استمع واصغ لصوتي

Representative Text

1 لي استمعْ واصغِ لصوتي
يا مجيباً للصلاهْ
لا تغُض الطرفَ عني
في اضطرابات الحياهْ
قد على صوت الأعادي
صوتُ غيظٍ واضطهادْ
فبقلبي دبَّ خوفٌ
وارتعابٌ وارتعادْ

2 قم وبدِّد يا إلهي
كل خبثٍ وضلالْ
في البلاد قد رأينا
شر ظلمٍ وقتالْ
لو أهانني عدوٌ
أو تعظمَ عليْ
لاختبأت منه حالاً
واحتملتُ كل شيْ

3 إنما أنت عديلي
أنت إلفي والصديقْ
حيث كان العيش يحلو
معَك أيها الرفيقْ
كل يومٍ كنت معنا
قاصداً بيت الصلاهْ
كيف أصبحتَ عدواً
كيف مِلتَ للخُطاهْ

4 فإلى الله أنادي
في المساء والصباحْ
وكذا في الظهر أشكو
بالبكاء والنُّواحْ
فهو يعطيني خلاصاً
سامعاً صوت الدعاءْ
قد فداني بسلامٍ
لاسمه كل الثناءْ

This tune is adapted from Barthélemon's piece Durandarte and Belerma: A Pathetic Scotch Ballad (1797). Some editors describe AUTUMN as "adapted from Psalm xlii in the Genevan Psalter, 1551", referring to the similarity between this tune and FREU DICH SEHR.
