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.

Representative Text

واشفق أيا حليمْ
برحمةٍ تنصرُني
بحقك القويمْ

2 من الشرور حلَّ بي
ما ليس يُحصرُ

فلستُ أبصرُ

وليقل شعب الفِدا
تعظم الإلهْ

7 أما أنا فبائسٌ
يهتم بي الرحمانْ
فقم إلى معونتي
واسعِف أيا منّانْ
