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.

1 - يا رجاءَ القلب يا نورَ الحياه
يا يسوع الحُلوُ يا رب السلام
إشف نفسي واهدني بابَ النجاه
والتَفِت نحوي بلطفٍ وابتسام

2 - مرَّرَتْ نفسي وألقتني الذنوب
في بحار اليأس والخوف العظيم
فانتشِلني وأزل كلَّ الكروب
وتحنن أيها الراعي الرحيم

3 - يا خلاصي ليس لي ترسٌ سواكْ
مِن سهام الموت يا محيي النفوس
فمتى يا سيدي عيني تراكْ
فوق عرش المجد في أبهى جُلوسْ

4 - أنت نورُ الكون يا شمس السما
يا مسيحَ الله فادي المؤمنين
أنِرِ القلبَ وأجفانَ العما
كي أرى حبَّك كالصبح المبين

5 - إنني سلمت قلبي في يديكْ
يا سلامَ القلب في الخوف الشديد
كيف أخشى الموت والآتي إليكْ
يدخلُ الراحةَ والمثوى المجيدْ

6 - يا نصيبي يومَ تَنشَقُّ القبورْ
وسروري حين تأتي في السحاب
إستمع صوتيَ واذكر يا غفور
عبدَك الراجي الرضا يوم الحسابْ
