Representative Text

1 - هَلُمَّ هلُمَّ ادْنُ يا مُذنِبُ
فمِن أجلِك انهَلَّ ماءُ الحياهْ
فُديتَ فلا ثمنٌ يُطلَبُ
فنلتَ الفِدى هبةً والنَّجاهْ

2 - هلُمَّ سريعاً لماذا تُهينْ
محبةَ خالِقِك الـمُنعِمِ
وتأْبى اغتِسالاً وهذا الـمَعينْ
جَرى فتطَهَّرْ بذاكَ الدمِ

3 - هلُمَّ سريعاً أيا مَن سعى
فرحمتُهُ لم تَزَلْ داعِيهْ
ولكنَّ في القبرِ لن يُسمَعا
دُعاها فتَترُكُهُ ماضِيهْ

4 - هلمَّ سريعاً فروحُ النِّعمْ
إذا ما أُهينَ مضى وابتعدْ
فيكمُلُ مسعاك تحت الظُلَمْ
وتهبِط في ظلُمات الأبدْ

5 - هلُمَّ فقد حانَ قُربُ الزمانْ
إذِ الأرضُ تنحَلُّ ثمَّ السماءْ
وتجتمِعُ الناسُ حتى تُدانْ
فمَن ذا ينجّيك يومَ القضاءْ

Author: Thomas Hastings

Hastings, Thomas, MUS. DOC., son of Dr. Seth Hastings, was born at Washington, Lichfield County, Connecticut, October 15, 1784. In 1786, his father moved to Clinton, Oneida Co., N. Y. There, amid rough frontier life, his opportunities for education were small; but at an early age he developed a taste for music, and began teaching it in 1806. Seeking a wider field, he went, in 1817, to Troy, then to Albany, and in 1823 to Utica, where he conducted a religious journal, in which he advocated his special views on church music.
