1 كما أنا آتي إلى
فادي الورى مُستعجِلا
إذ قلتَ نحوي أقبلا
يا حملَ اللهِ الوديعْ

2 يا ربِّ إني مْجرمُ
فليغسِلَنْ قلبي الدمُ
إني إليك أقدِمُ
يا حملَ اللهِ الوديعْ

3 كما أنا لأنني
ذو فاقةٍ لا تنسَني
آتي إليك يا غَني
يا حملَ اللهِ الوديعْ

4 كما أنا مُستعطيا
أعمى أذلَّ الأشقيا
إليك أدنو مُخطيا
يا حمل اللهِ الوديعْ

5 أنت الذي تشفي العليلْ
أنت الذي تْروي الغليلْ
عني أزِلْ حِملي الثقيلْ
يا حملَ اللهِ الوديعْ

6 كما أنا لا برَّ لي
أدنو منَ الفادي العَلي
عن طِلبتي لا تغفلِ
يا حملَ اللهِ الوديعْ
