We ask for donations here just twice a year, and this is one of those times. So, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Last month, our Hymnary website had almost 1 million visitors from around the world: people like you who love hymns. To serve our users well takes money, and we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one such source.

يا أيها الحب السني

Representative Text

1 يا أيّها الحبُّ السني
تشتاقُ نفسي لحماكْ
آتي بها لتقتني
رداءَ بِرٍّ مِن فِداكْ
فهْي بهِ تَغنى

2 يا أيها النورُ المجيدْ
يا مُرشدي طولَ المدى
أَضِئْ بقلبي فيَزيدْ
نوراً ويزهو أبدا
بساطعٍ أسنى

3 يا أيها الصليبُ كمْ
رفعتَ رأسي عاليا
ففيك قَدَّستُ الألْم
ودُستُ مجداً باليا
في العالمِ الأدنى

Matheson, George, D.D., was born at Glasgow, March 27, 1842, and although deprived of his eyesight in youth he passed a brilliant course at the University of Edinburgh, where he graduated M.A. in 1862. In 1868 he became the parish minister at Innellan; and subsequently of St. Bernard's, Edinburgh. He was the Baird Lecturer in 1881, and St. Giles Lecturer in 1882. He has published several important prose works. His poetical pieces were collected and published in 1890 as Sacred Songs, Edinburgh: W. Blackwood. In addition to his hymn "O Love that wilt not let me go" (q. v.), four others from his Sacred Songs are in Dr. A. C. Murphey's Book of Common Song, Belfast, 1890. --John Julian, Dictionary of Hymnology, Appendix, Part II (1907)… Go to person page >
