إني أحب الرب لا لأربح النعيم

Representative Text

1 - إني أحب الرب لا
لأربح النعيم
ولا لكي أنجو من الــ
ــعذاب في الجحيم
لكن أحبه لأن
لي حبه يحلو
وهو الذي من فضله
أحبني قبل

2 - ذاك الذي من أجلنا
أهين كالعبد
واحتمل الصليب والـــ
ــهجوع في اللحد
وهو غني عاش في
دنياه كالفقير
من أجل أعداء فهل
لذاك من نظير

3 - أبَعد ذا أعبد من
أزال أوزاري
لطمع في جنةٍ
والخوف من نارِ
كلا وإنما كما
أحبني ربي
وقد سمت صفاته
يحبه قلبي

Author: Edward Caswall

Edward Caswall was born in 1814, at Yately, in Hampshire, where his father was a clergyman. In 1832, he went to Brasenose College, Oxford, and in 1836, took a second-class in classics. His humorous work, "The Art of Pluck," was published in 1835; it is still selling at Oxford, having passed through many editions. In 1838, he was ordained Deacon, and in 1839, Priest. He became perpetural Curate of Stratford-sub-Castle in 1840. In 1841, he resigned his incumbency and visited Ireland. In 1847, he joined the Church of Rome. In 1850, he was admitted into the Congregation of the Oratory at Birmingham, where he has since remained. He has published several works in prose and poetry. --Annotations of the Hymnal, Charles Hutchins, M.A. 1872… Go to person page >
