أراك بالإيمان يا حمل الرحمان

1 أراكَ بالإيمانْ
يا حملَ الرحمانْ
ربي يسوعْ
إسمعْ لطلبتي
وانزِعْ خطيتي
يا ليت جُملتي
عبدٌ يطوعْ

2 يا ربِّ زِد نفسي
من نعمةِ القُدسِ
أنت الرحومْ
زِد غَيرَتي ربي
لذلك الصلبْ
واضرِمْ على قلبي
حباً يدومْ

3 في ظلمةِ الاجفانْ
وشدةِ الأحزانْ
كُن مُرشدي
دعْ ظُلمتي تُكشَفْ
وأدمُعي تنشفْ
والوجهَ لا يُصرَفْ
عن سيدي

4 إذ تنتهي الأيامْ
كالحُلمِ في المنامْ
يحملُني المسيحْ
بجنبِه الجريحْ
هناك أستريحْ
إذ أصعَدُ
