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.

ليست لنا الوطن

Representative Text

1 ليست لنا الوطنْ
هذي الديارْ
إذ ينتهي الزمنْ
مثلَ البخارْ
كم راحلٍ مضى
عمرُهُ قد انقضى
بأمرِ ذي القضا
عنا وسارْ

2 لا نبتغي البقا
في ذا الوطنْ

دَرجُ الكفنْ
لا فرق في المسيرْ
بين طفل أو كبيرْ
إذ ربنا القديرْ

حيث السرورْ
إذ قد ترنَّما
جمعٌ شكورْ
باقين للدوامْ
نحمد الباري الأنامْ
حيث انتفى الظلامْ

4 ما دامتِ الحياهْ
في ذي الديارْ
فلنُهد للإلهْ
كلَّ الوقارْ
لأنه المجيب
مَن دعاه لا يخيبْ
إذ يقتني النصيبْ
عند القرارْ
