عشت غافلا مدى السنين

Representative Text

1 - عِشتُ غافلاً مدى السنينْ
غير سائلٍ عنِ الأمينْ
مَن فداني بالدمِ الثمينْ
في الجُلْجُثَهْ

القرار
برَّرتْني رحمةُ الرحيمْ
طهَّرتْني نِعمةُ العظيمْ
ضيقَ نفسي أفرجَ الكريمْ
في الجُلجثهْ

2 - مِن كلامِ اللهِ قد عرَفتْ
أنني للنارِ فارتجفتْ
فطلبتُ الربَّ واعترفتْ
في الجُلجثهْ

3 - يا لَتدبيرٍ سما عجيبْ
يا لَحبٍّ بانَ في الصليبْ
وحنوٍّ أظهرَ الحبيبْ
في الجُلجثهْ

William Newell (1868-1956) was born in Savannah, OH. He earned degrees from Wooster College, Princeton and Oberlin Theological Seminary. He served as Assistant Superintendent of the Moody Bible Institute, Chicago. The words for his hymn "At Calvary" came to him on his way to teach a class at the Bible Institute. He slipped into an empty classroom and wrote them quickly on the back of an envelope. (see bio in 101 More Hymn Stories, Osbeck, Grand Rapids, MI: Kregel, 1985.)
