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 لقوم رقدوا

Representative Text

1 طوبى لقوم رقدوا
بالحق في الرب يسوعْ
قد استراحوا ونجَوا
من دار همٍّ ودموعْ

2 تتبعهم أعمالهمْ
إلى مساكنِ السرورْ
ويُشرقون كَكوا
كبَ السما طول الدهورْ

3 نحن هنا كغُرَبا
وتائهين في الظلامْ
لكنما الموتُ لنا
بابٌ إلى دار السلامْ

4 فلا تكن أحزانكمْ
إن حل حزنٌ أو بلاءْ
كحزن باقي الناس مَنْ
قد أصبحوا بلا رجاءْ

5 لأن موت الأتقيا
في عينِ مولانا عزيزْ
وهو الذي ينقُلهمْ
للمجد في حِرزٍ حَريزْ

6 ألذُّ شيءٍ عندنا
رضى العلي في ذي الحياهْ
فهو الذي يمنحنا
تعزيةً عند الوفاهْ
