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

حرب لها اضطرام

Representative Text

1 - حربٌ لها اضطرامُ
ما دمتُ في الدنيا
في الربِّ لي سلامُ
ومُنيتي القُصوَى
يسوعُ لي مِقدامُ
لا أرهبُ البَلوى
للمؤمنِ استخدامُ
في دارِه العُلـيا

2 - إن تهجُمِ الجنودُ
في حَوْمَةِ الـمَيدانْ
أو تقصِفُ الرعودُ
أو تُضرَمُ النيرانْ
أرَ العِدى تعودُ
بالذلِّ والخُسرانْ
فلا يُرى مفقودُ
من عسكرِ الرحمانْ

3 - يا جندَ ربي قاتِلْ
بالسيفِ والدروعْ
يا جندَ ربي الباسلْ
لا تخشَ ما يروعْ
تحتَ السلاحِ الكاملْ
حارِبْ معَ الجموعْ
تفُزْ بنصرٍ عاجِلْ
تحت لِوا يسوعْ

4 - هيا بنا استعِدّوا
لتِلكُمُ الدِّيارْ
حيث يحِلُّ المجدُ
في مجمعِ الأبرارْ
حيث المديحَ نشدو
بنغمةِ القيثارْ
حيث الثنا والحمدُ
للمَلِكِ القَهَّارْ
