Representative Text

1 أحنُّ اشتياقاً لذاك الوطنْ
لأنظرَ ربي يسوعَ المجيدْ
وأبقى هنالك طولَ الزَّمنْ
وأرفع صوتي بأعلى النشيدْ

هناكَ الرحومْ
وصوتُ الملائكِ ينفي الهمومْ

2 وأُلبَسُ ثوباً نقياً نُسِجْ
منَ الربِّ فاديَّ فوقَ الصليبْ
لذاك أقولُ لقلبي ابتهِجْ
لأن المخلِّصَ نِعمَ النصيبْ

3 أريدُ الرحيلَ لدارِ البقاء
لأشكرَ ذاك الإلهَ الكريمْ
وأَخلُصَ من كلِّ هذا الشقاء
وأسكُنَ فِرْدَوسَ ذاك النعيمْ

4 هناكَ يحلُّ بقلبي الكئيبْ
سرور ويذهب حزني الثقيلْ
ويُشفى سقامي بذاك الطبيبْ
لأن المخلصَ يشفي العليلْ
