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 قد أحببتنا

Representative Text

1 - يسوعُ قد أحبَبتَنا
للموتِ يا حنونْ
بالضَّعفِ قد دُستَ القَوي
في أمنعِ الحُصونْ

بحبِّهِ الشافي
بحبِّه الكافي
بحبِّه الوافي

2 - قاسيتَ هولَ الموتِ إذْ
سُمِّرتَ بالصليبْ
أمواجُهُ عجَّتْ علَى
رأسِك يا حبيبْ

3 - فكلُّ ذا قاسيتَ مِنْ

وإن نسَيْناك فما
كُنتَ لِتَنسانا

4 - وهكذا أكملتَ ما
نحن به نَغنى
في الراحةِ العُظمَى التي
في مجدِكِ الأسنى
