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.

أنظر إلينا كلنا

Representative Text

1 أنظر إلينا كلنا
يا أيها الرب العلي
واحضر بمجدك البهي
حتى المكانُ يمتلي
لا تسعُ السماءُ يا
قديرُ مجدَك السني
فكيف تحويك إذاً
فَسحةُ هذا المسكنِ

2 لا سرَّ في البناءِ بلْ
وجودُك المُعطي الحياهْ
فقدِّس النفس بما
تُصغي إليه في الصلاهْ
وقدِّس الإنذارَ منْ
مبشِّرٍ في المِنبرِ
كذاك مَن يصغي إلى
كلامك المؤثِّرِ

3 يا رب تُحيِ إن تشا
رميمَ أعظمِ الرموسْ
فاسكن هنا واجعل لنا
ذا البيتَ ميلادَ النفوسْ
في الضَّرِّ أو في الضيق أو
في الحزن أو وقتَ السرورْ
يا أيها القدوسُ كنْ
معنا إلى دهر الدهورْ

4 فاحضر هنا مُستمعاً
صلاتَنا على الدوامْ
واستجب الدعاءَ ما
ندعوك في هذا المقامْ
وحين تنتهي هنا
فرصةُ تقديم السجودْ
في مجدك اجمعنا لكي
نسجدُ في دار الخلودْ
