إن خصم النفس يشهر

Representative Text

1 - إنَّ خصمَ النفسِ يَشهَرْ
صارِمَ القِتالْ
وهو كالأسودِ يزأرْ
يبتغي النِّزالْ

قرار
ها المسيحُ الربُّ قادِمْ
فاحفظوا الحُصونْ
لا تخافوا من مهاجِمْ
ظالمٍ خَؤونْ

2 - حربُنا العُظمى تشُبُّ
كاللظى الشديدْ
لكنِ الفادي المحبُّ
قائدٌ مَجيدْ

3 - نعمةُ الربِّ العظيمهْ
ضعفَنا تُعينْ
كيف نخشى مِن هزيمهْ
نصرُنا مُبينْ
