1 بحسبِ كِلْمَةِ العَلي
بغايةِ الخُشوعْ
أفعلُ هذا ذاكراً
موتَكَ يا يسوعْ

2 فجِسمُكَ المكسورُ مِنْ
أجلي غِذا الحياهْ
ودمُكَ المسفوكُ ذا

4 وكيف أنسى حمَلاً
قد ماتً عن ذنبي
واحتَمَلَ التعييرَ وال
آلامَ بالصلبِ

5 أذكرُ حبَّك الذي

أذكرُهُ ما دمت في ال
حياةِ والوجودْ

6 وحينما يثني البَلى
فمي عن الشكرِ
اذكرني يا ربَّ الورى
في ملكك الدهري
