إني لفي احتياج

Representative Text

1 إني لَفي احتياجٍ
إليك يا غفور
يا رب نق نفسي
من دنَس الشرور
دم المسيح الفادي
يطهر القلوب
فتب إليه يا من
غرقتَ في الذنوب

2 إني لفي احتاجٍ
إليك يا قدير
لأنني غريب
وسائح فقير
شُغلي بحب ربي
ما سرت في الطريق
أراه سلوى نفسي
في السير كالرفيق

3 إني لفي احتاجٍ
لبارِئِ الوجود
إذ يعتني بنفسي
كالوالد الودود
فؤادُه حنونٌ
يرِقُّ للإنسان
لأنه إنسانٌ
قد جرَّبَ الأحزان

4 إني لفي اشتياقٍ
يا ربِّ أن أراك
فإنني سريعاً
أرقى إلى حِماك
هناك أشدو دوما
في حضرة الربِّ
مرنما تسبيحاً
من داخل القلب
