Full Text

1 - حبُّ يسوعَ الفادي
ردَّ أثيماً تاهْ
مثلي إلى حِماهُ
تقودُني يُمناهْ
رحمتُهُ الفداءُ
تسبيحَةُ الدهورْ
عُلُوُّها السماءُ
أعماقُها البحورْ

حبُّهُ حلوٌ ثمينْ
ثابتٌ طولَ السنينْ
حبُّه الشديدُ
في الحشا يزيدُ
ثابتاً طولً السنينْ

2 - دعا إلى حِماهُ
كلَّ بني الأنامْ
ففازَ من لبَّاهُ
بالصفحِ والسلامْ
جابِرُ قلبِ العاني
وواهبُ البصرْ
أدركَ ضعفَ نفسي
وزلَّتي غفرْ

3 - أفضى به لِصلبٍ
حنوُّهُ العجيبْ
لم يَشْكُ مُرَّ موتٍ
وهْو على الصليبْ
يا معشرَ الأبرارِ
في الأرضِ والسماءْ
نادوا بحمدِ الباري
ألمانِحِ الفداءْ

Lelia (Mrs. C.H.) Morris (1862-1929) was born in Pennsville, Morgan County, Ohio. When her family moved to Malta on the Muskingum River she and her sister and mother had a millinery shop in McConnelsville. She and her husband Charles H. Morris were active in the Methodist Episcopal Church and at the camp meetings in Sebring and Mt. Vernon. She wrote hymns as she did her housework. Although she became blind at age 52 she continued to write hymns on a 28-foot long blackboard that her family had built for her. She is said to have written 1000 texts and many tunes including "Sweeter as the years go by." Mary Louise VanDyke Go to person page >
