We ask for donations here just twice a year, and this is one of those times. So, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Last month, our Hymnary website had almost 1 million visitors from around the world: people like you who love hymns. To serve our users well takes money, and we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one such source.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546, or you can click the Donate button below. From the entire Hymnary.org team, our grateful thanks.

أيها الراعي الحبيب

Representative Text

1) أيها الراعي الحبيبُ
اهدنا سبلَ السواءْ
حيث مرعاك الخصيبُ
فيه أطيبُ الغذاءْ
فأذِقنا، فأذقنا
مُشبعا خبزَ السماءْ
ثم قُدنا، ثم قُدنا
لينابيعِ الرِّواءْ

2) كن لنا خِلاّ صدوقاً
دافعا عنا الكروبْ
وعلينا كن شفوقاً
في الرزايا والخطوبْ
وأعنا، وأعنُا
حين تشتد الصعابْ
وأجرنا، وأجرنا
دافعا شرَّ الذئابْ

3) أنت أسلفت الوعودا
بالتغاضي والسماحْ
ربِّ حطمِ القيودا
واهدنا سبلَ الفلاحْ
فنعيشَ، فنعيشَ
في حمالكَ لا نخافْ
آمنينا، آمنينا
في حظيرةِ الخرافْ

4) أبدا نبغي رضاكا
أيها الراعي العظيمْ
فالقلوب مُشتهاكا
كن بها الدهر مُقيمْ
نِعمَ راعٍ، نِعمَ راعٍ
ساهراً على القطيعْ
للدهورِ، للدهورِ
عَينُه ترعى الجميعْ
