Full Text

1 - لقد كنتُ قبلاً رهينَ القِصاصْ
أسيرَ الخطايا فرُمتُ الخلاصْ
فأنقذَني من جحيمِ الشرورْ
مخَلِّصُ نفسيَ صخرُ الدهورْ

منقذي من حمأتي انتشلْ
باتَ أمني صخرةُ الأزلْ
رتِّلي يا نفسِ للحملْ
سبحيهِ هللويا

2 - يسوعُ حباني النشيدَ الجديدْ
نهاراً وليلاً هنائي يَزيدْ
فقلبي يفيضُ ثنا ومديحْ
لربِّ خلاصي يسوعَ المسيحْ

3 - لراحِمِ نفسي المنجّي الغفورْ
أرتلُ دوماً بلحنِ السرورْ
يُهيبُ ندائي بدانٍ وقاصْ
لكي يَقبَلَ الناسُ بُشرى الخلاصْ
