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 مضى دهر لفاد

Representative Text

1 قد مضى دهر لفادٍ
خبزُه المحيي كسرْ
سَنّ هذا الخبزَ سراً
فاحفظوا هذا الأثرْ
مَن يمَيزْه يذقهُ
ذاكراً فادي البشرْ

2 طالما كانت ظلاماً
أرضنا طول المدى
حين لم يُسمع بحق
مِن لدى راعٍ هدى
كان هذا الرمز يُنبي
عن فِدى رب الفدى

3 حاملي اسم الرب أبدوا
صدقَ إيمانٍ يُعَدْ
اكسروا واتحدوا في
جسدٍ خبزاً أحدْ
كلكم أعضاءُ رأسٍ
واحدٍ فوق جسدْ

4 أقبلوا واشتركوا في
سرِّ رمزٍ يُمتلكْ
وكلوا حق طعامٍ
لم يمُت حيث سلكْ
يا محبُّ اشهد بهذا
أن ذي الأنفسَ لكْ
