مثلما دل المجوس

Representative Text

1 مثلما قادَ المجوسْ
نورُ نجمٍ مرشدِ
إذ بدا فوقَ الرؤوسْ
هادياً للمذودِ
هَبْ لمن ضلُّوا المسيرْ
كوكبَ الصبحِ المنيرْ

2 وكما هُم عَبدوا
بالرضا الطفلَ يسوعْ
ولهُ قد سجدوا
بسرورٍ وخشوعْ
ليتما كلُّ أثيمْ
مثلَهمْ يبغي الرحيمْ

3 وكما أهدوا لُبانْ
معَ مُرٍّ وذهبْ
ليتنا في كلِّ آنْ
كلَّ ما لنا نَهَبْ
نقِفُ العمرَ لهُ
شاكرينَ فضلَهُ

4 ربَّنا هَبْ أن نسيرْ
في الطريقِ الضيّقِ
أعطِنا خيرَ النصيرْ
في السما إذ نرتقي
حيث لا تَهدي النجومْ
لا ولا تَغشى الغيومْ

5 ما لنجمٍ في السماءْ
أو لشمسٍ مِن نصيبْ
في العُلى ربُّ العَلاءْ
شمسُ بِرٍّ لا تغيبْ
فلربِّنا المسيحْ
أبداً نُهدي المديحْ

Author: William C. Dix

Dix, William Chatterton, son of John Dix, surgeon, of Bristol, author of the Life of Chatterton; Local Legends, &c, born at Bristol, June 14, 1837, and educated at the Grammar School of that city.

His fine Epiphany hymn, "As with gladness men of old,” and his plaintive ”Come unto Me, ye weary," are examples of his compositions, many of which rank high amongst modern hymns. In his Hymns of Love and Joy, 1861, Altar Songs, Verses on the Holy Eucharist, 1867; Vision of All Saints, &c, 1871; and Seekers of a City, 1878, some of his compositions were first published.
