Representative Text

1 كما أنا وليس لي عذر لديك
إلا الدم المسفوك عني من يديك
وأمرك القائل أن آتي إليك
آتي أنا يا حمل الله الوديع

2 كما أنا ولست أبقى كي أزيل
عيباً من العيوب والحملُ ثقيل
إليك يا من دمه يشفي العليل
آتي أنا يا حمل الله الوديع

3 كما أنا وإن أكن مُلقىً على
جمر همومٍ وشكوكٍ وبَلا
من كل صوب خارجا وداخلا
آتي أنا يا حمل الله الوديع

4 كما أنا أعمى شقي وفقير
فيك الشفاء والنور والغنى الكثير
نعم وكل حاجتي أيا قدير
آتي أنا يا حمل الله الوديع

5 كما أنا تقبلُني في صفحكا
مُرَحّباً مُطهراً ببركا
لأن قلبي واثقٌ بوعدكا
آتي أنا يا حمل الله الوديع

6 كما أنا وقد نقضت عهدكا
جهلاً بحبك أهنت مجدكا
الآن كي لك أكون وحدكا
آتي أنا يا حمل الله الوديع

Her hymns number about 150, a large percentage of which are in common use. The finest and most widely known of these are, "Just as I am” and "My God… Go to person page >
