During our last fund drive one donor said this: "I love hymns ... If you asked for money, it means you need it! Please keep the work going. And please, accept my widow's mite. God bless you."

She was right. We only ask for money twice a year, and we do so because we need it.

So, before you close this box and move on to use the many resources on Hymnary.org, please prayerfully consider whether you might be able to make a gift to support our work.

يا رب ما أحلى السلام

Representative Text

1 - يا رب ما أحلى السلامْ
للقلب بالإيمانِ
مذ جاءَنا فادي الأنامْ
بالصفح والغُفرانِ

ذا السلمُ من رب الفدى عجيبُ
عذبٌ لذيذٌ سرمداً يطيبُ

2 - هذا سلام لي يدوم
في النفس والأفكارِ
هذا يلي قهر الخصوم
إبليسَ والأوزار

3 - إن خار عزمي أو فترْ
حبي، فلا ينساني
إذ قوتي فادي البشرْ
أبصارُه ترعاني

4 - لا خوفَ فيه لا اضطرابْ
بل راحةٌ من إثمي
أسمى مواعيدِ الكتابْ
حلوٌ لذيذ الطعمِ

5 - قدِّس فؤادي بالحلول
فيه بروح القدس
واجعل سلامي كالسيول
يجري ويُروي نفسي

6 - حتي إذا حان الأجل
للوضع ضمن اللحد
يبقى سلامي كالجبل
أرقى به للمجد
