Hymnary Friends,

As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!

Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us do that. Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

أنت عظيم البركات

Representative Text

1 أنت عظيم البركاتْ
يا رب للعبيدْ
رشدٌ وعونٌ وثباتْ
وملجأٌ وطيدْ

2 تُعني بحفظ الغُرَبا
في أبعد البلادْ
ينجونَ من ريح الوبا
والحرِّ والفسادْ

3 إذا طمى الموج الرفيعْ
وهاجت المياهْ
يدرون أنك السميعْ
ومصدرُ النجاهْ

4 بالأمر سكَّنت البحورْ
والريحَ يا جبارْ
فأنت سلطان الدهورْ
تقضي بما تختارْ

5 في شدة الخوف العظيمْ
نظلُّ آمنينْ
لأن فضلَك العميمْ
حصنٌ لنا حصينْ

6 ما دمتُ في قيد الحياهْ
قلبي يكون لكْ
والنفس في وقت الوفاهْ
تحل منزلَكْ
