Hymnary Friends,

As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!

Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us do that. 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.

حب يسوع الفادي رد أثيما تاه

حب يسوع الفادي رد أثيما تاه

Author: Mrs. C. H. Morris
Published in 1 hymnal

Representative Text

1 - حبُّ يسوعَ الفادي
ردَّ أثيماً تاهْ
مثلي إلى حِماهُ
تقودُني يُمناهْ
رحمتُهُ الفداءُ
تسبيحَةُ الدهورْ
عُلُوُّها السماءُ
أعماقُها البحورْ

حبُّهُ حلوٌ ثمينْ
ثابتٌ طولَ السنينْ
حبُّه الشديدُ
في الحشا يزيدُ
ثابتاً طولً السنينْ

2 - دعا إلى حِماهُ
كلَّ بني الأنامْ
ففازَ من لبَّاهُ
بالصفحِ والسلامْ
جابِرُ قلبِ العاني
وواهبُ البصرْ
أدركَ ضعفَ نفسي
وزلَّتي غفرْ

3 - أفضى به لِصلبٍ
حنوُّهُ العجيبْ
لم يَشْكُ مُرَّ موتٍ
وهْو على الصليبْ
يا معشرَ الأبرارِ
في الأرضِ والسماءْ
نادوا بحمدِ الباري
ألمانِحِ الفداءْ

Lelia (Mrs. C.H.) Morris (1862-1929) was born in Pennsville, Morgan County, Ohio. When her family moved to Malta on the Muskingum River she and her sister and mother had a millinery shop in McConnelsville. She and her husband Charles H. Morris were active in the Methodist Episcopal Church and at the camp meetings in Sebring and Mt. Vernon. She wrote hymns as she did her housework. Although she became blind at age 52 she continued to write hymns on a 28-foot long blackboard that her family had built for her. She is said to have written 1000 texts and many tunes including "Sweeter as the years go by." Mary Louise VanDyke Go to person page >
