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.

حدثني الروايه

Representative Text

1 - حَدِّثْنِيَ الرِّوايهْ
قديمةَ العُهودْ
عمَّن إلى النهايهْ
مُخلصي الودودْ
عن لطفِهِ العجيبِ
عن سفكِه دِماهْ
موتاً على الصليبِ
ليُنقِذَ الخُطاهْ

حدِّثنِيَ الروايهْ
حدِّثنِيَ الروايهْ
حدِّثنِيَ الروايهْ
عن ربِّنا يسوعْ

2 - أُبسُطْ لي العِبارهْ
كما إلى الصغارْ
فالقلبُ في مرارهْ
من كثرةِ الأفكارْ
أَخبِرْ بكلِّ مهلِ
لأحفظَ الكلامْ
فيستنيرَ جَهلي
ويُكشَفَ الظلامْ

3 - حدِّث بذي الروايه
في ساعة الهلوعْ
واجعلْ بها الكفايهْ
لتُمسحَ الدموعْ
أخبِرْ عن الحنونٍ
عن ملكِ الآبادْ
في ساعةِ المنونْ
إذ تقرُبُ الأمجادْ

Her publications include Heart to Heart (1870) and The Old, Old Story and Other Verses (1879). Bert Polman… Go to person page >
