ضل الورى في ظلمات الخطا

Full Text

1 ضلَّ الورى في ظُلُماتِ الخَطا
يسوعُ نورُ العالْم
مَن مجدُهُ كالشمسِ يجلو الدُّجى
يسوع نور العالْم

سِرْ إليهِ سناهُ يُسفِرْ
لاحَ حولي للحقِّ يُظهِرْ
كنت أعمى والآن أُبصرْ
يسوعُ نورُ العالْم

2 زال الدُّجى عن ثابتٍ في القديرْ
يسوع نور العالْم
إذا تبِعناهُ بنورٍ نسيرْ
يسوع نور العالْم

3 لا مُقتَضَى لشمسِنا في العُلى
يسوع نور العالْم
فحَمَلُ القدوسِ نورُ السما
يسوع نور العالْم
