ما أعظم الحب الذي

ما أعظم الحب الذي

Full Text

1 - ما أعظمَ الحبَّ الذي
في قلبِ فادينا الودودْ
حبٌّ عجيبٌ قد سما
ليس له حدودْ

محبةٌ عظيمةٌ علتْ
في طولِها، وعرضُها عجيبْ
عميقةٌ وقد سمتْ سمتْ
جذورُها في قلبِهِ الحبيبْ

2 - بالحب أخلى نفسَهُ
مِن مجدِهِ كابنِ الإلهْ
وصارَ إنساناً لكي
يمنحَنا الحياهْ

3 - تَفرِجُ عنا ضيقَنا
محبةُ الفادي الحنونْ
تشفي جراحَ ضعفِنا
وتقهر المنونْ

4 - تغلبُ في جِهادِها
جميعَ أجنادِ الشرورْ
لا تسقطُ البَتَّةَ بلْ
تبقى مدى الدهورْ

Lelia (Mrs. C.H.) Morris (1862-1929) was born in Pennsville, Morgan County, Ohio. When her family moved to Malta on the Muskingum River she and her sister and mother had a millinery shop in McConnelsville. She and her husband Charles H. Morris were active in the Methodist Episcopal Church and at the camp meetings in Sebring and Mt. Vernon. She wrote hymns as she did her housework. Although she became blind at age 52 she continued to write hymns on a 28-foot long blackboard that her family had built for her. She is said to have written 1000 texts and many tunes including "Sweeter as the years go by." Mary Louise VanDyke Go to person page >
