أحيا لربي حياة الوفاء

Representative Text

1- أحيا لربي حياةَ الوفاء
على الدوامِ أرومُ رضاه
للفادي أرفعُ كلَّ الولاء
فأحظى مِنهُ بمجدِ سناه

قرار:
فيا يسوعُ ربي نفسي لك وقفتْ
لأنك بالصلبِ حياتك وهبتْ
نبذتُ ما عداكَ فليس لي سواكْ
املك ربي على قلبي فأحيا في رضاكْ

2- أحيا لمن ذاقَ المرَّ المذيب
وبالصليبِ أزالَ الآثام
أجيبُ نداءَ الحبِّ العجيب
مكرسا قلبيَ بالتمام

3- أحيا لربي في هذي الحياه
رضاهُ عن شخصيِ كَنزي الثمين
أسعى لربح نفوس الخطاه
ليستريحَ المتعبُ المسكين

Tune

[Living for Jesus a life that is true] (Lowden)

LIVING FOR JESUS is a gospel hymn tune distinguishable by its dactylic rhythm for the stanzas and its straightforward iambic refrain. The guitar chords avoid some of the chromaticism of the original harmony; when using guitar, do not use keyboard. Singing the refrain only once–at the end of stanza…
