لست يا قبر بشي

Full Text

1 لستَ يا قبرُ بشيْ
منكَ لا نخشى وعيدا
إنما يسوعُ حيْ
فعلينا لن تسودا - هللويا

2 في السما الحيُّ القديرْ
فالردى بابُ الحياه
كيف نخشى من مَسيرْ
عبرَ وادي الظُّلُماتِ - هللويا

3 في السما الحي الغفورْ
فلنعش طوعَ يديهِ
وإلى دهر الدهورْ

4 في السما الحيُّ الشفيعْ
فلهُ نحنُ ومنهُ
ليس شيءٌ يستطيعْ
فصلَنا في الكونِ عنهُ - هللويا

5 في السما الحيُّ العظيمْ
سائدٌ كلَّ العوالْم
عن قريبٍ سنُقيمْ
في نعيمٍ معهُ دائمْ - هللويا

6 في السما الحيُّ الصمدْ
شمسُ برٍّ لا تغيبُ
فاقَ أنوارَ الجَلَدْ
مجدُهُ السامي العجيبُ - هللويا
