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.

يا نفس قومي بالعجل

Representative Text

1 - يا نفس قومي بالعجل
ها قد بدت شمس الصباح
خلي التواني والكسل
واسعَي إلى رب الصلاح

يا من وهبت الآن لي
شمسا لمحو الظلمة
أشرق بنورك الجلي
وامح دجى خطيتي

2 - يا رب درب سبلي
وكن لقلبي ناظرا
واجعل فؤادي يمتلي
روحا وديعا طاهرا

3 - واجعل قوايَ والفِكَرْ
وكل قولي والعمل
تؤول يا رب البشر
لمجدك السامي الأجل

4 - حتى إذا حان الرحيل
من ذي الديار الفانيه
أكون يا ربي نزيل
تلك الديار الباقيه
