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.

إجعلني ربي خيرا لغيري

Representative Text

1- ضلَّ الأنام في سبُلِ الآثامْ
واشتد ثِقلُ الذنوبْ
بشرى الخلاصِ خبِّرِ الأنامْ
فهي عزاءُ القلوبْ

إجعلني ربي خيراً لغيري
حتي يشعَّ مني النورْ
إجعلني ربي لغيري ضياءْ
رافعا جَهراً لواءَ السرورْ

2- اكرزْ بإنجيلِ حبِّ المسيحْ
خبِّر بسلوى الغفرانْ
تهدِ لربكَ كلَّ جريحْ
يتبعْكَ كلُّ الخلانْ

3- جُدْ بالسخا من فيضهِ العميمْ
أَحبِب كالرب المُعينْ
كُن للضعيف الملجأ العظيمْ
كن إلى الموت أمينْ
