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

قد بدا في بيت لحم

Representative Text

1 قد بدا في بيت لحمٍ
في مكانٍ محتقرْ
خيرُ مولودٍ لأم
في البرايا قد ظهر
وهما عذراؤنا
والمسيح المُنتظرْ

2 إنه رب كبير
فوق أعلى الجَلدِ
وهو في الأرض صغير
مُضجع في مذودِ
مع أدنى الفُقرا
عاش ربُّ الأبد

3 حنت العذرا عليه
مضجعا فوق الذراعْ
ورَنت حُبّا إلهي
أمَرَته فأطاع
قُدوةً أضحى لنا
بحنان واتضاع

4 صار للناس مثالا
مثلَنا عاش نما
جرَّب الضعف وجالا
وبكى وابتسما
فلذا يرثي لنا
وهو في أعلى السما

5 إننا سوف نراه
في ربوع الأطهرين
يملأ العُليا ضياهُ
ويُنيرُ المؤمنين
حين نرقى للعلا
معه نبقى كل حين

6 ليس في المذود يبدو
بل نراه في سماهْ
بالثنا والحمد نشدو
وهو في عرش علاه
حولَه أبرارُهُ
كنجوم من ضياه
