Full Text

1 - أحيا لربي أُعَلّي لِواهْ
أسعى بجِدٍّ لفِعلِ رضاهْ
أخضعُ عمري لربي يسوعْ
كلُّ اغتِباطي بهذا الخُشوعْ

يسوعُ ها حياتي
أنت وهَبْتَها
لـمّا دِماك ربي
عني سفَكْتَها
يسوعُ لست أرضى
لي سيداً سواكْ
طولَ المدى مؤبداً
أعيشُ في حِماكْ

2 - أحيا لربي هنا في المسيرْ
باسمِ يسوعَ يهونُ العسيرْ
ألقى البلايا بصدرٍ رحيبْ
كلُّ اضطهادٍ لأجلِ الحبيبْ

3 - أحيا لربي به أستنيرْ
يبدو يَبَشُّ فأغدو قريرْ
أسعى لربحِ نفوسِ الخُطاهْ
كي يطلُبوا عفوَ ربِّ الحياهْ

Author: Thomas O. Chisholm

Thomas O. Chisholm was born in Franklin, Kentucky in 1866. His boyhood was spent ona farm and in teaching district schools. He spent five years as editor of the local paper at Franklin. He was converted to Christianity at the age of 26 and soon after was business manager and office editor of the "Pentecostal Hearld" or Louisville, Ky. In 1903 he entered the ministry of the M. E. Church South. His aim in writing was to incorporate as much as Scripture as possible and to avoid flippant or sentimental themes.
