حرب لها اضطرام

Representative Text

1 - حربٌ لها اضطرامُ
ما دمتُ في الدنيا
في الربِّ لي سلامُ
ومُنيتي القُصوَى
يسوعُ لي مِقدامُ
لا أرهبُ البَلوى
للمؤمنِ استخدامُ
في دارِه العُلـيا

2 - إن تهجُمِ الجنودُ
في حَوْمَةِ الـمَيدانْ
أو تقصِفُ الرعودُ
أو تُضرَمُ النيرانْ
أرَ العِدى تعودُ
بالذلِّ والخُسرانْ
فلا يُرى مفقودُ
من عسكرِ الرحمانْ

3 - يا جندَ ربي قاتِلْ
بالسيفِ والدروعْ
يا جندَ ربي الباسلْ
لا تخشَ ما يروعْ
تحتَ السلاحِ الكاملْ
حارِبْ معَ الجموعْ
تفُزْ بنصرٍ عاجِلْ
تحت لِوا يسوعْ

4 - هيا بنا استعِدّوا
لتِلكُمُ الدِّيارْ
حيث يحِلُّ المجدُ
في مجمعِ الأبرارْ
حيث المديحَ نشدو
بنغمةِ القيثارْ
حيث الثنا والحمدُ
للمَلِكِ القَهَّارْ
