إن كنيسة العلي

Representative Text

1 - إن كنيسة العلي
واحدةً طول المدى
والرب سيد لها
يحفظها مِنَ العِدى
خليقةٌ جديدةٌ
بالماء والكلمةِ
جاء لكي ينقذَها
من أسرها بالنعمة

2 - من كل أمةٍ تُرى
بين الملا تحت السما
قد جمعتهُم ضمنها
حتى ينالوا النعما
فواحد سيدُها
وواحد إيمانُها
وواحد رجاؤها
وواحد تُكلانُها

3 - لَئن يُصب وَحدَتَها
داعي النفور والشِّقاق
أو دخلتها بِدَعٌ
تسلُبُها روحَ الوفاق
فإنَّ سيدَ الملا
يرعى بنيها سرمدا
فليس أبوابُ الردى
تقوى عليها أبدا

4 - في تعبٍ وألمٍ
في كدرٍ وفي سَقام
تنتظر اليوم الذي
فيه ترى نورَ السلام
وسوف تحظى بالذي
ترجو بأن تنظرَهُ
وتُبصِرُ المُلكَ الذي
تشتاق أن تُبصِرَهُ
