1 - فارِحاً فارِحاً أمضي إلى الــ
مسكَنِ المستنيرِ بالحَملْ
مسرعاً نحوَ خُلاَّني الذينْ
سافروا قبلُ للمينا الأمينْ
حيث ألتقي بهم في النعيمْ
يا لَشوقي إلى المجد العظيمْ
جميعهم معَ الفادي هناكْ
فارحاً فارحاً أقصدُ ذاكْ

2 - يا لَشوقي إلى ذاك اللقا
ولسمْعي ترانيمَ السما
يا نِبالَ المنايا لا أخافْ
فِعْلَكِ المرَّ يومَ الإنصرافْ
شوكة الموت قد داس المسيحْ
كاسراً ساحقاً باب الضريحْ
مات عني لأحيا في حماهْ
فارحاً فارحاً عيني تراهْ
