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.

Representative Text

1 - يا خاطيءُ اسمَعَنْ نِدا
فادي الورى نورِ الهُدى
إنْ تَبتَغي نَيلَ الفِدا
لبِّ ذا الندا

فلبِّ النِدا
فلبِّ النِدا
في الحالِ إن
تبتَغِ الفِدا

2 - قُمْ لبِّ ذيّاك النِدا
فالعمرُ ولّى وانقَضى
وقبل أن تَلْقى الرَّدى
لبِّ ذا الندا

3 - فإن تكُن تبغي الهَنا
لبِّ الندا فيه الغِنى
تنَلْ بربِّك المنى
فلبِّ الندا

4 - نداؤه عمَّ البشرْ
وحبُّه يجلو الكَدرْ
فإن ترُمْ نيلَ الظَّفرْ
لبِّ ذا الندا
