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.

حين أرى صليب من

Representative Text

1 - حين أرى صليبَ مَنْ
قضى فحازَ الانتصارْ
رِبحي أرى خِسَارةً
وكلَّ مجدِ الكونِ عارْ

2 - يا ربِّ لا تسمحْ بأنْ

3 - مِن رأسِهِ وكفِّهِ

والحبِّ أيضاً معْ دمِهْ

4 - أيُّ دمٍ زاكٍ جرى
كدمِه الزاكي الثمينْ
وأيُّ تاجٍ مثلُ تا

5 - بم أُكافي مُنقذي
مِن سُلطةِ الخطيةِ
إلا بتكريسي لهُ
نفسي وكلَّ قُوتي
