لا إسم قد حلا

1 لا إسمَ قد حلا
في الخلقِ أو سما
كاسمِ يسوعْ
مَنْ بينَ ذا الورى
أو ساكِني العُلى
قلبي ابتغى سوى
ربي يسوعْ

2 قد اشترَيْتَني
بدمِكَ الغني
ربي يسوعْ
فحبُّك العظيمْ
قد فاقَ يا رحيمْ
يا مُفتدي الأثيمْ
ربي يسوعْ

3 إليك أَلْتجي
نُعْماك أرتجي
ربي يسوعْ
لا أختشي لذاكْ
شراً ولا هلاكْ
ما دمت في حماكْ
ربي يسوعْ

4 سيفرَحُ القلبُ
متى أتى الربُّ
ربي يسوعْ
بغايةِ السرورْ
لأبدِ الدهورْ
أُشاهدُ الغفورْ
ربي يسوعْ
