مع ملاك الله جند

Representative Text

1 - مع ملاكِ الله جندٌ
لرعاةٍ قد ظهرْ
حوله الأملاكُ أيضاً
بخلاصٍ للبشرْ
في العُلى لله مجدٌ
وعلى الأرض السلامْ
وله شكرٌ وحمدٌ
وسرورٌ للأنامْ

2 - اسمعوا لحنَ الثناءِ
من جنودٍ في عُلاهْ
بقيـاثيرِ السماءِ

وُلِدَ اليومَ المسيحُ
مُضجَعاً في المذودِ
مُلكهُ ملكٌ صحيحٌ
دائمٌ للأبدِ

3 - تاركاً مجدَ عُلاهُ
وترانيمَ الصفا
أشرقتْ شمسُ سناهُ
بجناحَيها الشفا
فهَلُمي يا برايا
وارفعي صوتَ المديحْ
هوذا الماحي الخطايا
ربُّنا الفادي المسيحْ
