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.

طوبى لذي القلب الكسير

Representative Text

1 طوبى لذي القلبِ الكسيرْ
إذا رآك ناحلاً
مَن لم يدَع عينَ الفقيرْ
ترقى إليه باطلاٍ

2 الفاتحِ الصدرَ الرحيبْ
حساًّ بما يؤذي أخاهْ
يجرحُهُ جرحُ القريب
للعجز منه عن شفاهْ

3 يبسُط إسعافا يديه
لكل من يشكو التعبْ
إحسانُهُ يجري عليه
مستتراً بلا طلبْ

4 أرجلُه مثلَ الجناحْ
تجرى إلى الخير الوثيقْ
وعينُه ذاتُ الصلاحْ
ترى العدوَّ كالشقيقْ

5 لأجل ذا تأتي إليه
نعمةُ ربهِ الصمدْ
وعند ما يجثو لديهْ
يحيا بأمنٍ للأبد
