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.

نور فادي الناس أشرق

Representative Text

1 - نور فادي الناس أشرق
من علاه في الظلام
والهدى السامي تألق
مذ أتت بشرى السلام
في يسوع النور فاقا
كل أنوار الشموس
وهو اللأبصار راقا
بل غدا نورَ النفوس

2 - نوره عِلم تجلى
وعزاء في القلوب
حيث حل الجهل ولى

نوره المعطي السلاه
مذ بدا ضاء الوجودْ
في التجلي والقيامه
قد تبدى والصعودْ

3 - وجهه الباهي تراهُ
في الأعالي كل عين
شمس فِردوسٍ سناهُ
فوق نور النيِّرَينْ
قد جرى ذا النور يسطع
من بلاد لبلادْ
سينير الكون أجمعْ
في الروابي والوهادْ
