حين أرى صليب من

Representative Text

1 - حين أرى صليبَ مَنْ
قضى فحازَ الانتصارْ
رِبحي أرى خِسَارةً
وكلَّ مجدِ الكونِ عارْ

2 - يا ربِّ لا تسمحْ بأنْ
أفخرَ إلا بالصليبْ
مُكَرِّساً نفسي وما
أملِك للفادي الحبيبْ

3 - مِن رأسِهِ وكفِّهِ
وجنبِهِ وقدمِهْ
سالت ينابيعُ الشِّفا
والحبِّ أيضاً معْ دمِهْ

4 - أيُّ دمٍ زاكٍ جرى
كدمِه الزاكي الثمينْ
وأيُّ تاجٍ مثلُ تا
جِ الشوك أحيا العالمينْ

5 - بم أُكافي مُنقذي
مِن سُلطةِ الخطيةِ
إلا بتكريسي لهُ
نفسي وكلَّ قُوتي
