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.
Harry Plantinga

إن عشت في الدنيا فقير

إن عشت في الدنيا فقير

Author: Salathiel Cleaver Kirk
Published in 1 hymnal

Representative Text

1 - إن عِشتُ في الدنيا فقيرْ
وحدي ومحرومَ النصيرْ
فالربُّ كنزي والـمُجيرْ
في وحدتي سُلواني

يسوعُ مِفتاحُ الغِنى
فوقُ وفي هذي الدُّنَى
أضحى نصيبي والمنى
ودائماً مِعواني

2 - وإن أخُضْ لُجَّ المياهْ
فمُنقذي فُلكُ النجاهْ
يسيرُ بي طولَ الحياهْ
لأبلغَ الأماني

3 - وإن طغى حولي الدُّجى
فلست مقطوعَ الرجا
يدا يسوعَ الـمُرتَجَى
للنورِ تهدِياني

4 - وعندما يأتي الحِمامْ
أرسو على شطِّ السلامْ
أعيشُ مع فادي الأنامْ
للدهرِ في أوطاني
