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

شكرا لرب فضله

Representative Text

1 شكرا لرب فضله
بحر طما زخار
يروي الثرى من جوده
إذ يرسل الأمطار

جميع ما نحيا به
من فضله العميم
فلنشكرنه دائما
لحبه العظيم

2 يُبدي لنا من شمسهِ
حرّا به نحيا
ومِن نُسَيماتِ الصَّبا
وغيثهِ نُروى

3 كل الورى من خلق من
قد أبدع الأكوان
وزان بالنجم الدجى
فأبهج الإنسان

4 وأطعم الأطيار مِن
أثمار غرسهِ
فكم لنا يُعطي إذا
من عرش قدسهِ

5 نشكرك اللهم من
أجل عطاياكا
فالمال والصحة وال
حياةُ جَدواكا

6 فاقبل إذا يا ربنا
من أجل ذا الإحسان
منا قلوبا ملؤها
عواطف الشكران
