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.

Tune: LAMBETH (Schulthes)
Published in 1 hymnal

Representative Text

1 رب استمع تضرعي
يا أيها المعينْ
فهِّم كلامَك النقي
لعبدك المسكينْ

2 يا رب إن علمتني
شرعَك والأحكامْ
يفيض بالسبح فمي
لك على الدوامْ

3 اخترتُ قولك الجلي
يا ربنا العظيمْ
أسرع إلى معونتي
بحقك القويمْ

4 قلبي اشتهى يا سيدي
خلاصك الثمينْ
قولُك صار لذّتي
ومرشدي الأمينْ

5 لتَحيَ نفسي دائماً
ولتحمد الكريمْ
وليكن لي مُنجداً
حكمك يا عظيمْ

6 لقد ضللتُ تائهاً
في الأرض مثلَ الشاهْ
اعطِف عليّ واهدني
قولك لا أنساهْ
