مجرد الفكر بكا

مجرد الفكر بكا

Full Text

1 - مُجردُ الفكرِ بكا
يا سيدي الغفورْ
يا منقذي بحبكا
يجلُبُ لي السرورْ

2 - وكم يفيضُ قلبيا
بالفرح الشديدْ
حين أراك ربيا
في مجدك الفريدْ

3 - وكم يرى جمالكا
ومجدَك البديعْ
مَن قد جَذبتَهُ لكا
بحبِّك الرفيعْ

4 - إنك كوكبٌ طلعْ
في اللـيلةِ الليلاءْ
بل نورُ شمسٍ فد سطعْ
فبدد الظلماءْ

5 - يا ربُّ إنني لكا
أُوقِفُ ذا اللسانْ
لِينطِقَنْ بفضلكا
دوماً بكل آنْ

Author: Edward Caswall

Edward Caswall was born in 1814, at Yately, in Hampshire, where his father was a clergyman. In 1832, he went to Brasenose College, Oxford, and in 1836, took a second-class in classics. His humorous work, "The Art of Pluck," was published in 1835; it is still selling at Oxford, having passed through many editions. In 1838, he was ordained Deacon, and in 1839, Priest. He became perpetural Curate of Stratford-sub-Castle in 1840. In 1841, he resigned his incumbency and visited Ireland. In 1847, he joined the Church of Rome. In 1850, he was admitted into the Congregation of the Oratory at Birmingham, where he has since remained. He has published several works in prose and poetry. --Annotations of the Hymnal, Charles Hutchins, M.A. 1872… Go to person page >
