هلا أتيت إلى المسيح

Full Text

1 - هلا أتيتَ إلى المسيحْ
كيما تنالَ رِضى الذبيحْ
أم أنت لا تَلينْ
روحَ الهُدى تُهينْ
وتُحزِنُ الأمينْ
رجا الخطاهْ

2 - لا تتوانَ عنِ القَبولْ
فالعمرُ يمضي وسيزولْ
يا أيها الحيرانْ
أجِبْ نِدا المنّانْ
أقبِلْ إلى الإيمانْ
تنَلْ فِداهْ

3 - جاءَ الحِصادُ والصيفُ فاتْ
أقبِلْ إليه قبلَ المماتْ
في يومِك الرهيبْ
والموقِفِ الـمَهيبْ
تدعو ولا مُجيبْ
بعدَ الوفاهْ
