During our last fund drive one donor said this: "I love hymns ... If you asked for money, it means you need it! Please keep the work going. And please, accept my widow's mite. God bless you."

She was right. We only ask for money twice a year, and we do so because we need it.

So, before you close this box and move on to use the many resources on Hymnary.org, please prayerfully consider whether you might be able to make a gift to support our work. Gifts of any amount are appreciated, assist our work and let us know that we have partners in our effort to create the best database of hymns on the planet.

مغبوط المعطي الغيور

Representative Text

1 مغبوطٌ المعطي الغيورْ
في عمل الخير العظيمْ
وكل معطٍ بسرورْ
يحبه الرب الكريمْ

في السخاء سرورُ
وأجرٌ عظيمْ
فالكريم الغيورُ
يَسُر الرحيمْ

2 أكرِمْ بمالك الإلهْ
فتمتلي خزائنُكْ
ويسمعُ الله الصلاهْ
وروحه يساكنُكْ

3 مَن يرحمُ العافي الفقيرْ
يقرض ربّه الجليلْ
وسيجازيه القديرْ
عن ذلك الفعلِ الجميلْ

4 ومن يسد أذنيهْ
عن صوت مسكينٍ حزينْ
فالرب لا يصغي إليهْ
في طِلبةٍ ولا يُعينْ

5 لذاك لا تنس الجميلْ
إلى جميع المُعوِزينْ
بل افعل الخير الجزيلْ
لا سيما للمؤمنينْ
