Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? 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.

Ĉe arktaj neĝo-montoj

Representative Text

1. Ĉe arktaj neĝo-montoj, hom-plena orient',
Afrikaj sunaj fontoj, proksima okcident';
ĉe valo kaj kamparo, rivero kaj arbar',
nin vokas gefrataro en ĉenoj de erar'.

2. Nin ravas birda sono, allogas ĉiu flor',
troviĝas ja malbono nur en la homa kor':
kaj vane riceviĝas de l' homo ĉiu bon';
li blinde genuiĝas al ligno kaj al ŝton'.

3. Ĉiele lum-benitaj, ĉu rifuzadu ni
al homoj nesavitaj la scion pri l' Mesi'?
"Vin savis Krista amo, akceptu lin en ver'!"
sonadu la proklamo en ĉiu land' sur ter'.

4. Ruliĝu, mara ondo, kaj ventoj, blovu vi,
ke venku tra la mondo la Krist-evangeli'.
Ĝis laŭ fervora preĝo revenos Krist' al ni,
Savinto, Dio, Reĝo — kaj ĉie regos li.

Author: Reginald Heber

Reginald Heber was born in 1783 into a wealthy, educated family. He was a bright youth, translating a Latin classic into English verse by the time he was seven, entering Oxford at 17, and winning two awards for his poetry during his time there. After his graduation he became rector of his father's church in the village of Hodnet near Shrewsbury in the west of England where he remained for 16 years. He was appointed Bishop of Calcutta in 1823 and worked tirelessly for three years until the weather and travel took its toll on his health and he died of a stroke. Most of his 57 hymns, which include "Holy, Holy, Holy," are still in use today. -- Greg Scheer, 1995… Go to person page >
