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.

سيسود الفادي

Representative Text

1 سيسود الفادي
ريسُ السلامْ
وسَط البلادِ
لمدى الأيامْ
حكمه بالعدلِ
ثابتٌ متينْ
يُخضع المُستعلي
يُنصف المسكينْ

للمسيح الفادي
قدموا الإكرامْ
فهو للآبادِ
ريِّسُ السلامْ

2 عرشه وطيدٌ
اسمه مَرهوبْ
عصره سعيدٌ
يُبهج القلوبْ
يُشرق الأبرارُ
فيه كالشموسْ
تهدأ الأفكارُ
تفرح النفوسْ

3 ولديه تسجدْ
أمم الأقطارْ
والملوك تعبدْ
اسمَه المُختارْ
فهو فادٍ ظافرْ
للتقي نصيرْ
ومُعينٌ قادرْ
يُسعف الفقيرْ

4 اسمه كريمٌ
وإلى الآبادْ
مجده عظيمٌ
يملأ البلادْ
مجدوا اسم الفادي
ربنا الأمينْ
ملكِ الأمجادْ
واهتفوا آمينْ
