حدثني الروايه

Full Text

1 حَدِّثْنِيَ الرِّوايهْ
قديمةَ العُهودْ
عمَّن إلى النهايهْ
مُخلصي الودودْ
عن لطفِهِ العجيبِ
عن سفكِه دِماهْ
موتاً على الصليبِ
ليُنقِذَ الخُطاهْ

حدِّثنِيَ الروايهْ
حدِّثنِيَ الروايهْ
حدِّثنِيَ الروايهْ
عن ربِّنا يسوعْ

2 أُبسُطْ لي العِبارهْ
كما إلى الصغارْ
فالقلبُ في مرارهْ
من كثرةِ الأفكارْ
أَخبِرْ بكلِّ مهلِ
لأحفظَ الكلامْ
فيستنيرَ جَهلي
ويُكشَفَ الظلامْ

3 حدِّث بذي الروايه
في ساعة الهلوعْ
واجعلْ بها الكفايه
لتُمسحَ الدموعْ
أخبِرْ عن الحنونٍ
عن ملكِ الآبادْ
في ساعةِ المنونْ
إذ تقرُبُ الأمجادْ
