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.

نودع هذا الجسم في الترب

Representative Text

1 نُودعُ هذا الجسمَ في التُّربِ
إذ ترتقي النفس إلى الربِّ
إلى الذي فداه بالصلبِ
نستودع الراقدَ بالإيمانْ

2 إلى انتهاء ظُلمة الأجفانْ
إلى بلوجِ الصبح في الأوطانْ

3 إلى انتهاء الكرب والجهادْ

إلى دوامِ الحب والإسعادْ

4 إلى مجيءِ الرب في السحبِ
ومبعث الأمواتِ بالربِّ
إلى اجتماعِ الأهل والصَّحبِ

5 إلى بلوغِ القصد والكمالْ
ولُبسِ تاجٍ فائقِ الجمالْ
إلى لقاءِ الرب ذي الجلالْ
نستودع الراقدَ بالإيمانْ
