During our last fund drive a donor said this: "Covid-19 rules prevent us from singing during my husband's burial service, so we will play the tune while we read the printed words or hum along with the music." Needless to say, this testimony struck us and stuck with us. We never know on any given day how Hymnary.org will be a blessing to people, but we know that around the world, the site is making a powerful difference in the lives of many.

Thanks to all who use Hymnary.org and all who support it with gifts of time, talent and treasure. If you feel moved to support our work today with a gift of any amount and a word of encouragement, we would be grateful.

To donate online, please use the Calvin University secure giving site. If you'd like to make a gift by check, please send it to: Hymnary.org, Calvin University, 3201 Burton Street SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

What though my joys and comfort die?
The Lord my savior liveth.
What though the darkness gather round?
Songs in the night he giveth.

(My Life Flows On In Endless Song)

أروم قربا منك يسوع

Representative Text

1 - أروم قُرباً
منك يسوعْ
أجثو لديكَ
بروح الخشوعْ
بين يديكَ
ضم فتاكْ
فإن أمني
جِراحُ حشاكْ

2 - وإن روحي الــ
خيرٌ لديكَ
مِن الـمُـحرقهْ
ما لِـيَ برٌ
ولا صلاحْ
بل كلُّ بري
بتلك الجراحْ

3 - بالقرب منكَ
أسلو الدُّنَى
إذ لك نفسي
وأنت المنى
لا شيء يُلهِي
عنك القلوبْ
إياك أهوَى
يسوعُ المصلوبْ

4 - ما دمت حياً
في ذي الربوعْ
زدني اقتراباً
حبيبي يسوعْ
بعد انتقالي
إلى سماكْ
أزداد قرباً
إليك هناكْ

Author: Mrs. C. H. Morris

Lelia (Mrs. C.H.) Morris (1862-1929) was born in Pennsville, Morgan County, Ohio. When her family moved to Malta on the Muskingum River she and her sister and mother had a millinery shop in McConnelsville. She and her husband Charles H. Morris were active in the Methodist Episcopal Church and at the camp meetings in Sebring and Mt. Vernon. She wrote hymns as she did her housework. Although she became blind at age 52 she continued to write hymns on a 28-foot long blackboard that her family had built for her. She is said to have written 1000 texts and many tunes including "Sweeter as the years go by." Mary Louise VanDyke Go to person page >
