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.

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
