لا يمكن المياه

Representative Text

1 لا يمكنُ المياهْ
أن تغسلَ الوضرْ
لكن دماءُ ابن الإلهْ
تطهرُ البشرْ

2 ذاك الذي نزل
من أعظمِ الرُّتَبْ
وأعظَمَ العارِ احتمل
أهينَ وانصلبْ

3 ذاك لكي نكون
في عدد البنينْ
نشاهد الرب الحنونْ
في المجد كل حينْ

4 ما أعظم النِّعَمْ
من ربنا الكريمْ
إذ مِن عدوِّنا انتقمْ
للفوز بالنعيمْ

5 فالشكر والسجودْ
له إلى الأبدْ
لأنه رب الجنودْ
والواحدُ الصمدْ
