في حب ربي راسخ

Full Text

1 في حبِّ ربي راسخْ
بالأمنِ أسكُنُ
ولا أخاف ناسِخْ
والقلبُ يركنُ
إن غامتِ السماءُ
وسالتِ المياهْ
يُنيرُ لي الضياءُ
من حضرةِ الإلهْ

2 إن قادني يسوعُ
لا أرهب الشرّا
والهولُ لا يروعُ
ولا أرى الضرّا
حِكمَتهُ تَهديني
كالنورِ للبصرْ
ولُطفُه يَحميني
دوماً من الخطرْ

3 إلى الحِمى المنيرِ
يقتادُني ربي
بلطفِه الشهيرِ
بجاذبِ الحبِّ
يسوعُ راعي نفسي
لا أرتجي سواهْ
يُخرِجُني من حَبْسي
إلى رُبَى حِماهْ
