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.

حول عرش الله جيش

Representative Text

1 حول عرش الله جيشٌ
من صغارٍ طاهرينْ
جيش أبرارٍ كرامٍ
في سماه واقفينْ
يهتفون بابتهاجٍ
قائلين المجدُ لكْ

2 بيض أثوابٍ عليها
ذاتَ لونٍ لا يحولْ
سكنوا في فيض نورٍ
وسرورٍ لا يزولْ
يهتفون بابتهاجٍ
قائلين المجدُ لكْ

3 بدمِ الربِّ استطاعوا
للسما العليا الوصولْ
حيث مجدٌ وسرورٌ
وسلامٌ وقبولْ
يهتفون بابتهاجٍ
قائلين المجدُ لكْ

4 طلبوا نعمةَ ربٍّ
ههنا قبل الوفاهْ
فرأوه الآن جهراً
والتقوا ربَّ الحياهْ
يهتفون بابتهاجٍ
قائلين المجدُ لكْ
