Full Text

1 - كنت في حمأةِ الإثمِ والأقذارْ
فصرختُ إلى الـمُنعِمِ
إنتَشِلْني ربي واغسلِ الأوزارْ
فافتُديتُ بذاك الدمِ

نلتُ غُسْلَ الدماءْ
فامَّحتْ وصماتُ الذنوبْ
باتَ قلبي الآن بادِيَ النقاءْ
بالـمَعينِ مُنَقّي القُلوبْ

2 - في طريقِ الهُدى طابَ لي المسيرْ
مع يسوعَ مُنجي الأنامْ
فيسوعُ النورُ معَه أسيرْ
بضِياهُ أزالَ الظلامْ

3 - قد غسلتُ الرِّدا بدمِ الذبيحْ
فإذا ما أتاني العريسْ
فعلى استعدادٍ أشهدُ المسيحْ
آتياً بالـمُحَيّا الأنيسْ
