على جبين المفتدي

Full Text

1 على جبينِ المفتدي
يبدو سنا الجمالْ
عيناهُ بحرُ رحمه
ورأسُهُ مكللٌ
بالمجدِ والجلالْ

2 وفيضُ نعمةٍ يُرى
في ثغرِهِ المنيرْ
فما له بين الورى
أو في السما نظيرْ

3 لما رأى الإنسانَ في
بحرِ الردى قد غاصْ
دنا إليه مسرعاً
بنعمةِ الخلاصْ

4 قد صار عني فديةً
مُخلصي الحبيبْ
إذ مات عني رافعاً
إثمي على الصليبْ

5 شكراً لمحيي عبدِهِ
ومصدرِ النصرِ
إذ حُزتُ مِن نعمتِهِ
نصراً على القبرِ

6 يُمناهُ تهديني إلى
منازلِ المجدِ
فمُهجتي أُهدي لهُ
وكلَّ ما عندي

Bury St. Edmunds, Suffolk, England, 1634) from a melody in Christopher Tye's Acts of the Apostles and published in T. Este's The Whole Book of Psalmes (1592) set to Psalm 84. Ki…
