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

Dum Izrael' en Sinaj Tendumis

Representative Text

1. Dum Izrael' en Sinaj tendumis, per Mose'
La Eternul' al ili parolon sendis, ke:
"Sur mia flugilar' el Egipta lando mi
Vin ĉiujn save portis: mi estas via Di'!

2. Samkiel la aglino instruas al idar'
Ekflugi, mi patrinas al vi en amo, ĉar
Vi estas miaj idoj, vin gvidas mia vol' —
Mi ja patrinas al vi, min aŭdu, ho popol'!"

3. Se Dio do similas al agla la patrin'
Kaj estas ankaŭ patro, imagu vin kaj min!
Ni timas nek la rolojn, nek etikedojn plu —
Se Dio ilin miksas, ni ne ĉikanu, ĉu?

4. Ja Dio ne virinas, nek estas Dio vir',
Sed ambaŭ kaj alia, Vivanta Sankta Spir'.
El ĉiuj rollimigoj nin liberigis Di' —
Al kia libereco? — Tutsimple esti ni.
