Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

1 يا بني المولى السماوي
رنموا وقت السفرْ
سبحوا الفادي المعزي
والعظيمَ المُعتبرْ

2 ستصيرونَ إليهِ
في طريق السالفينْ
إنه في دار سعدٍ
يلتقيكم بعد حينْ

3 يا قطيعَ الرب هللْ
قاصدا مَغنى يسوعْ
ولك الملكُ مُعَدٌّ
في ذرى تلك الربوعْ

4 أيها الإخوة زوروا
أرضَ ميعاد النفوسْ
حيث قال الرب سيروا
لا تخافوا من بُؤوسْ

5 هب لنا يا رب نمضي
بسرورٍ آمنينْ
كن لنا قائدَ رشدٍ
نقتفيهِ تابعينْ
