Abstract: 

Today, the literary critics divide poetry into four main kinds. They are epic, dramatic, lyric, or didactic poetry. In order to determine the literary genre of a hymn, its definition should be considered. It is a sort of poetry containing silent prayers, the statements of being needy and impotent, etc. praising the greatness of God. it is also per formed in the purity of heart and the tenderness of feelings. Since there are strong elements of feelings and sentiments, from the viewpoint of literary genres, the entity of a hymn is a lyric one. On the other hand, considering the Persian hymns containing a kind of advice, they are called didactic lyric as well. The prevailing sentiments in the Persian hymns are the senses of being needy and important toward God as well as being hopeful for His forgiving, mercifulness, etc.
