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.

ضللت في ليل الخطا

Representative Text

1 - ضللتُ في ليلِ الخطا
فاقْتادَني يسوعْ
جلا الدُّجى عن مُقلتي
وفُزتُ بالرُّجوعْ

نورٌ نورٌ مالئٌ حَشايْ
نورٌ نورٌ دائماً هُدايْ
ردَّني فاديَّ غافراً خَطايْ
حبُّه العظيمُ مالئٌ حَشايْ

2 – إن ثار من حولى اضطراب
واشتدت الأحزانْ
يعضُدُني نورُ الورى
فتنجلي الأشجانْ

3 - يحلو حديثي معَهُ
بكاملِ الولاءْ
وأقتفي آثارَهُ
يغمُرُني الضِّياءْ

4 - أُذيعُ في كلِّ الملا
بُشراهُ للعِبادْ
يهدي سبيلي حُبُّهُ
في الزرعِ والحَصادْ

5 - إنِّ الذي أرشدَني
مصدرُ كلِّ نورْ
سوف أراه في العُلى
بالمجدِ للدهورْ
