لا تفعل الإثم ولا تنطق بقول غضب

Representative Text

1 لا تفعل الإثمَ ولا
تنطق بقولٍ غضَبْ
فإنك ابنٌ للعلي
وذاك خيرُ نسب

2 يسوع حنّان وذو
لطفٍ وقلبٍ طاهرِ
فكن له مماثلا
في باطن وظاهر

3 إن حامتِ الآثام من
حولك تبغي الافتراسْ
فاحذر ولا تفسح لها ال
مجالَ وارقبْ باحتراسْ

4 لا تصنع الشر وإن
حلَّت عليك النائباتْ
بل قاوم الإثمَ وكن
مجاهداً حتى الممات
