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.

Representative Text

1 ما كان لي ربحاً لقد حَسِبتُهُ
خَسَارةً من أجلِ فاديَّ المسيحْ
وليس شيءٌ غيرُهُ
أطلبُهُ لأستريحْ

2 لو كنت حتي الآن أُرضِي بَشَراً
ما كنتُ عبداً للمسيحِ ابنِ العَلي
فلْـيُرضِ كلُّ واحِدٍ
قريبَه للأفضلِ

3 ليس لنا يا نفسُ وعدٌ واحِدٌ
نظيرَ إبراهيمَ لكِنْ أكثرُ
فأسرِعي أنْ تخضَعي
للهِ في ما يأمُرُ

4 إليكَ إنْ أدْنُ أيا مُخلصي
وأنت تدنو نحوَ نفسي يا كريمْ
فلستُ أرهبُ العِدى
وأنت في قلبي مُقيمْ
