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.

يسوع أيا من أطعت أباك

Representative Text

1 يسوع أيا من أطعت أباكْ
وأودعت روحك بين يديهْ
وأنقذت بالموت أسرى الهلاكْ
والبستهم ثوب بر لديهْ

2 وأسلمتَ نفسك عني وقد
حملت ثِقالَ خطايا البشر
ففزت على الموت بعد الجلَد
وقمت وقد نلت تاج الظفر

3 أعِنّي إذا ما دهاني الجزع
وخيم حولي جيش الظلام
وبُثَّ سلامك حولي ودع
ضياءك يجلو كثيف الغمام

4 أمِل ناظري للصليب لدى
مماتي ورأسي الكليل اسنُدِ
وتمم خلاصي بسر الفدى
وخذني إليك أيا سيدي
