1 مع ربِّنا الفادي
نكونُ كلَّ حينْ
وعدٌ به يحيا هنا
رجاؤنا الثمينْ

2 بعينِ إيماني
يا مُنيتي أراكْ
لكنَّ عيني تشتهي
أنْ تجتلي سناكْ

3 كُن عن يميني يا
ربِّ الورى السنينْ
وكُن لنفسي حافظاً
وملجأً حصينْ

4 وحينما نفسي
تفارِقُ الجسدْ
تمضي إلى حماكَ كي
تحيا إلى الأبدْ

5 هناك أدري ما
لست هنا أدري
ووجهَ فاديَّ السني
أرى مدى الدهرِ
