Hymnary Friends,

As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!

Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us do that. 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.

Representative Text

1 تِهتُ عنِ القطيعْ
مثلَ الخروفِ الضالْ
ينأى عن الراعي الوديعْ
للقفرِ والجبالْ
مُهاجِرَ الأوطانْ
كالولَدِ الشاردْ
بل تِهتُ في قفرِ الهوانْ
عن ذلك الوالدْ

2 راعيَّ في الحقولْ
قد نَشَدَ الخروفْ
وقد دعا ابنَهُ الجهولْ
ذاك الأبُ الرؤوفْ
مضى إلى الجِبالْ
وفتّشَ الأوطانْ
ثم رآني في خَبالْ
كالفاقدِ الوِجدانْ

3 فساقَني على
مناهِجِ الوَدادْ
فصِرتُ مُنقاداً إلى
جميعِ ما أرادْ
بالحبِّ قادني
يسوعُ ذو الألطافْ
بفضلِهِ أدخلني
حظيرةَ الخرافْ

4 مخلصي الغني
راعيَّ لا سواهْ
فهو الذي أحبَّني
فصرتُ في حِماهْ
والآن حبهُ
يفيض في قلبي
على المدى أحبهُ
لا غيرُهُ ربي

Author: Horatius Bonar

Horatius Bonar was born at Edinburgh, in 1808. His education was obtained at the High School, and the University of his native city. He was ordained to the ministry, in 1837, and since then has been pastor at Kelso. In 1843, he joined the Free Church of Scotland. His reputation as a religious writer was first gained on the publication of the "Kelso Tracts," of which he was the author. He has also written many other prose works, some of which have had a very large circulation. Nor is he less favorably known as a religious poet and hymn-writer. The three series of "Hymns of Faith and Hope," have passed through several editions. --Annotations of the Hymnal, Charles Hutchins, M.A. 1872… Go to person page >
