من راسيات الثلج

Representative Text

1 من راسياتِ الثلجِ
وساحلِ الهندِ
ومن أقاصي الزنجِ
ذي الغورِ والنجدِ
وسهلِ كل مرجِ
بالنخلِ ممتدِّ
يدعوننا لنُنجي
مَن ضلَّ بالرشدِ

2 إذا سرى النسيمُ
كالمسكِ في كِيلانْ
ولم يكن ذميمُ
فيها سوى الإنسانْ
فباطلاً يقومُ
مِن ربنا الإحسانْ
وخلقُه يرومُ
عبادةَ الأوثانْ

3 نحن الذين انقادوا
للنور والحكمهْ
هل يُمنعُ الإيقادُ
منا عن الظلمهْ
يا للخلاص نادوا
بأبهجِ النغمهْ
فتعرفُ الأبعادُ
إسماً لذي الرحمهْ

4 يا ريحُ بُثّي البُشرى
والماءُ فليَجرِ
حتى يفيضَ بحراً
قُطراً إلى قُطرِ
حتى يعودَ جَهراً
بملكه الدهري
مَن مات موتاً مُرّا
عنا كما ندري

Author: Reginald Heber

Reginald Heber was born in 1783 into a wealthy, educated family. He was a bright youth, translating a Latin classic into English verse by the time he was seven, entering Oxford at 17, and winning two awards for his poetry during his time there. After his graduation he became rector of his father's church in the village of Hodnet near Shrewsbury in the west of England where he remained for 16 years. He was appointed Bishop of Calcutta in 1823 and worked tirelessly for three years until the weather and travel took its toll on his health and he died of a stroke. Most of his 57 hymns, which include "Holy, Holy, Holy," are still in use today. -- Greg Scheer, 1995… Go to person page >
