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 رب إني ضارع

Representative Text

1 يا ربُّ إني ضارعٌ
إليك فارحمني
ولا تكن مبتعداً
يا سيدي عني

2 فإن سكتَّ مُعرضاً
عني أيا ربي
أُشبهُ من قد هبطوا
في أسفل الجُبِّ

3 صوتَ تضرعي استمعْ
إذ أحتمي بكا
ثم يدِي أرفعها
بدار قدسكا

4 لا تتركَنّي سيدي
مع فاعلي الآثامْ
مع مبغضي حقَّ العلي
مع كارهي السلامْ

5 مخاطبي أصحابِهمْ
بأنعَم الكلامْ
والشر في قلوبهمْ
نارٌ لها اضطرامْ

6 يلقَون مثل شرهمْ
من صاحب الجلالْ
يرد في أحضانهمْ
كفعلهمْ في الحال

7 ويسقطون سقطةٌ
لأبد الأزمانْ
لأنهم لم يفهموا
مراحمَ الرحمانْ
