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

لي منزل بعيد فوق السما

Representative Text

1 لي منزلٌ مجيدْ
فوق السما
كل امرءٍ سعيدْ
حازَ الهنا
يرقى إلى رباهْ
مالكاً سُكنى حِماهْ
في حضرة الإله
كلِّ الرجا

2 ملائك السلام
والرسُل الكرامْ
فيه بلا عدد
بابتهاج للأبد
تُسبحُ الصمدْ
بلا انتها

3 بل فيه تستريح
منَ الشقا
في كنفِ المسيح
عند اللقا
هناك لا وجعْ
أو بِلَحدٍ مضطَجَعْ
لا نَوحَ يُستَمعْ
ولا بكا

4 فيه يسبحون
ربَّ الفدا
دوماً يقدمونْ
كل الثنا
من كل قلبهم
إذ نجَوا مِن ذنبهمْ
في موت ربهم
نالوا الشفا
