الله من أعلى السما

Representative Text

1 الله من أعلى السما
رأى شقا الأنامْ
فأرسلَ ابنه لنا
وأوجد السلامْ
معَ الرعاةِ امضوا انظروا
مواهبَ النعمهْ
طفلاً ثوى في مذودٍ
نلنا به الرحمهْ

2 هذا المسيح ابن العلي
وسيدُ الأزلْ
مَن كان منذ البدء في ال
آب ولم يزلْ
فبالعيانِ الآن ما
ليس يُرى نراهْ
فالمجدُ لله العلي
إلى مدى الحياهْ

3 يا رب كم علمتنا
أن نهجر الدنيا
سعياً وراء كلِّ ما
يُنيلنا العليا
فلتمتليءْ قلوبُنا
بحبك الأسمى
وحُلَّ فيها دائماً
يا مصدر النُّعمى
