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.

في المواطن البهية عبر وادي الدموع

Representative Text

1 في المواطن البهيهْ
عبرَ ذا وادي الدموعْ
راحةُ النفسِ العليهْ
إذ شراها لي يسوعْ

راحةُ المتعبينَ
راحةُ المتعبينَ
راحةُ المتعبينَ
راحة لنا
في المواطن البهيهْ

راحةٌ مسيحيهْ

2 قد أعد لي مكاناً
أبدياً في العلاءْ
حيثما ألقى أماناً
وسروراً وصفاءْ

3 مات عنا الموتُ حقاً
بعد شوكةِ الخطاءْ
وحِجابُ الأرض شُقّا
عن مصابيح السماءْ

4 ليس في دار السلامِ
مِن كروبٍ أو عناءْ
إنها خيرُ المُقامِ
لجميعِ الأصفياءْ
