"Wa Habibi" hymn
« on: November 03, 2011, 02:37:24 PM »
I wanted to ask if anyone knows this hymn, and where its origins are.  I used to think it was an Arabic hymn created by Maronites.  Then I see this:

Is this a translation from Arabic, or is this an actual Syriac Orthodox hymn?
Vain existence can never exist, for "unless the LORD builds the house, the builders labor in vain." (Psalm 127)

If the faith is unchanged and rock solid, then the gates of Hades never prevailed in the end.
