عند انطلاق شعب الله

Representative Text

1 - عند انطلاق شعب اللهْ
من وسط أرض الضيقْ
مدَّ الرب لهم يُمناهْ
ليفتحَ الطريقْ

إلى الأمام يا جيش السلامْ
لا ترهبوا العدى
نخطو ظافرينْ دوماً ناظرينْ
لصانع الفِدى

2 - عمودُ سُحبٍ في النهارْ
لهم كان رفيقْ
وفي الليل عمودُ النارْ
يهديهم في الطريقْ

3 - وإذ تقدم الشعبُ
رأى البحرَ العميقْ
قوموا اعبُروا قال الربُّ
وافتتحَ الطريقْ

4 - إذ كنتُ ميْتاً بالآثامْ
ولم أجد صديقْ
أحياني منقذ الأنامْ
فسرت في الطريقْ

5 - وعند شدة الآلامْ
بل في الحزن العميقْ
أَنظرُ رئيسَ السلامْ
يفتتح الطريقْ

6 - قريباً يأتينا العريسْ
وننجو من ذا الضيقْ
وحلاً تُخطفُ العروسْ
لفاتح الطريقْ
