We ask for donations here just twice a year, and this is one of those times. So, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Last month, our Hymnary website had almost 1 million visitors from around the world: people like you who love hymns. To serve our users well takes money, and we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one such source.

حبيك زده يا خلي الودود

Representative Text

1 حُبِّيكَ زِدْه يا
خِلّي الودودْ
واسمعْ لطِلبتي
عندَ السُّجودْ
إذ كلُّ بُغيتي
فَرْطُ المحبةِ
فرْطُ المحبةِ

2 قد رُمتُ ههنا
نيلَ الهنا
والآن في ربي
كلُّ المنى
إذ كل مُنيتي
فرْطُ المحبةِ
فرْطُ المحبةِ

3 لا أرهبُ الحَزَنْ
ولا المِحَنْ
لا بل تَفيضُ لي
منها المِننْ
إن زارَ مُهجتي
فرْطُ المحبةِ
فرْطُ المحبةِ

4 وحينما يدنو
مني الأجلْ
يا نفسِ ردِّدي
حَمدَ الحَملْ
تحظَيْ بطلعه
ربِّ المحبةِ
رب المحبةِ
