حظيت بالخل الودود

Representative Text

1- حظيتُ بالخلِّ الودودْ
بالحبِّ كان البادي
"برُبُطِ المحبةِ"
أوثقَ نفسي الفادي
يربُط قلبي قلبُهُ
بجاذبِ الولاءِ
غدوتُ مُلكَ المفتدي
هنا وفي السماءِ

2- حظيتُ بالخلُّ الوفي
بالمنعمِ المنانِ
مَن تمَّ لي بموتهِ
ميلادُ نفسي الثاني
أنا له إذ هوَ لي
بـخَتمهِ المعهودِ
له فؤادي والقُوى
ما دمت في الوجودِ

3- حظيتُ بالخلِّ الشفيقْ
بَرٌّ بنا أمينُ
ربٌّ رؤوفٌ قادرٌ
لي مرشدٌ مُعينُ
إن قامَ حربٌ أو جهادْ
في العالم الفسيحِ
فإنَّ عزمي ثابتٌ
في خدمةِ المسيحِ

4- حظيتُ بالخلِّ النصيرْ
مخلصِ الأنامِ
سنى ضِياهُ أبداً
مُبدِّدٌ ظلامي
لا الموتُ لا - ولا الحياهْ
ولا قُوى الجحيمِ
تقدرُ أن تفصلَني
عن حبِّه العظيمِ
