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.

أُوصَنَّ في الأعالي
لكوكبِ الهُدى
أوصَنَّ في الأعالي

2 جندُ العُلَى الأطهارُ

فالحمدُ يا يسوعُ

منهم قبِلتَ الحمدا
فاقبَل كذا مِنا

5 فادي الأسيرِ العاني
من رِبْقَةِ القِصاصْ

6 تجثو لكَ الأقوامُ
وتخضعُ الشُّعوبْ
ويملِكُ السلامُ
وتُفرَجُ الكروبْ
