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.
Harry Plantinga

Representative Text

1 إن كانت الذنوب
كالقرمز القاني
تَبيَضُّ كالثلج الذي
في رأس لبنان

2 إن ضاقت الأحوال
واشتدت الأحزان
لا أختشي شرا ولي
عونٌ من الرحمن

3 إن تهجم العِدى
مع عسكر الجحيم
فلست أخشى أحدا
ومنقذي الرحيم

4 بترس إيماني
وسيفِ روح الله
وخوذةِ الرجا معاً
أظفر بالنجه
