مثل عظيم رحمتك يا خالقي ارحمني

Representative Text

1 - مثل عظيم رحمتك
يا خالقي ارحمني
ومثل فرط رأفتك
أمح الخطا عني

2 - إغسل كثيرا سيدي

وهكذا خذ بيدي

3 - إني بإثمي عارف

وهو أمامي واقف
أنظره الدهرا

4 - أخطأت يا ربِّ إليك
بالقول والفعل
والشرَّ ما بين يديك
صنعت فاصفح لي

5 - تشبعني يا منقذي
بالبهجة الفُضلى
فيفرح العظم الذي
في ذُله يبلى

6 - قلبا نقيا طاهرا
بي اخلُقه يا مولاي
وروحَ عدل ظاهرا
جدده في أحشاي
