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.

طوبى لمن يعطي ومن لم ينس جود ربه

Representative Text

1 طوبى لمن يُعطي ومنْ
لم ينس جود ربهِ
في كل أحوال الزمنْ
هذا سرورُ قلبهِ
لكنما كل العطا
إن كان حقاً بالرضا
يقبلهُ رب العُلى
مُجازياً خيرَ الجزا

2 إنّا نذيع علنا
جودك يا ربَّ النِّعَمْ
نحن وكل ما لَنا
من جود ينبوع الكرمْ
إرجاعها منا إليكْ
حَتمٌ علينا أجمعينْ
همومَنا نُلقي عليكْ
لأنك المُغني المعينْ

3 يا رب بارك العطاء
واجعله مقبولاً لديكْ
وهب لنا حب السخاء
نُقبِل به دوماً إليكْ
واقبل إلهي كل ما
نُعطي وباركه لنا
وهب لنا كنز السما
كنز الحياة والغنى
