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.

معروف الله القوي

Representative Text

1 معروفٌ الله القوي
في وسْط شعبه الأمينْ
عظيم اسمُه العَلي
بين جموع المؤمنينْ
ثبَّتَ في صِهيَونهِ
مسكنه الباهي الجمالْ
هناك حطم العِدى
وكل آلات القتالْ

2 أمجَدُ أنت يا قوي
من كل أبطال الحروبْ
هزمتهم سلبتهم
أسرتهم أيا مهوبْ
أنت قوي مُرهِبٌ
أنت مهوبٌ يا مجيدْ
إذا غضِبت مَن يُرى
قُدام سخطك الشديدْ

3 أسمَعتَ حُكماً عادلاً
فارتعب الكل معا
لما ظهرت قاضياً
مُخلصاً للوُدَعا
إن مقاصد العَلي
نافذةٌ بين الشعوبْ
مُمجّدٌ في سُخطهمْ
مُنتقمٌ من الغَضوبْ
