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.
Harry Plantinga

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
