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.

يا نفس قد وافى يسوع

Representative Text

1 - يا نفسِ قد وافى يسوعْ
ربُّ الفدى القديرُ
شافيكِ من سُقمٍ يَروعْ
طبيبُكِ الخبيرُ

أحلى نشيدٍ في العُلى
والأرضِ لاسمِهِ حلا
فلْتُؤده المـلا
أبهجَ الثناءِ

2 - قال المسيحُ ابنُ الإلهْ
إني غفرتُ إثمَكْ
سِرْ في سلامٍ للحياهْ
واطرَحْ عليَّ همَّكْ

3 - ما دُمتَ تبغي صُحبتي
عوني إليكَ أَقبَلْ
لا تخشَ بأساً - قُوتي
بالضعفِ فيكَ تُكْملْ

4 - من لي هنا أو في السما
يا سيدي سواكا
فاشدُدْ رجائي مُنعِما
بالروحِ مِن عُلاكا

5 - مِرساة نفسي في ثبات
في وعدك الأمينِ
تبقي معي حتى الممات
والنشرِ يا معيني
