ما أعجب النعمة لي

Representative Text

1- ما أعجب النعمة لي
من قلبك الكبير
من بعد ما ذقت العمى
ها إنني بصير

2- النعمةُ قد وَضعت
خوفَك في القلب
والنعمةُ قد حررت
قلبي من الرعب

3- كم من تجارِبَ رأتْ
عينايَ في الحياة
تكفي لنا نعمتك
يا ربنا الإله

4- إذ نرتقي دار العُلى
تبدو لنا الأعوام
مع طولِها وعرضِها
ليست سوى أيام

5- أشدو لك يا مالكي
ترنيمةَ الشكر
من كل قلبي يصعدُ
لحنٌ مدى الدهر
