قابلا حمل صليبي

Full Text

1 قابلاً حَملَ صليبي
أتبعُ الفادي الأمينْ
راضياً إنكارَ نفسي
وارْتِدا العارِ المُهينْ
فهْو لي أسنى نصيبٍ
وهْو مولايَ الحبيبْ
إنْ جفاني الناسُ طُرّاً
فهْو لي أسنى نصيبْ

2 مالكٌ كلَّ البرايا
وهْو باريها العَلي
كلُّ شيءٍ في السما وال
أرضُ لي ما دامَ لي
ليس لي خِلُّ سواهُ
إنني أبغي رضاهْ
حبُّهُ أقصى مُرادي
كيف لا وهْو الإلهْ

3 ليس ضيقٌ واضطهادٌ
يفصِلاني عن هواهْ
لست عن حُبِّيهِ ألهو
بأباطيلِ الحياهْ
فهْو لي كنزٌ ثمينٌ
وهْو لي حصنٌ حصينْ
عندَهُ قلبي مُقيمٌ
فهْو لي كنزٌ ثمينْ

4 فلذا أحيا هنا في الـ
أرضِ كالضيفِ الغريبْ
راجياً بعد ارتحالي
أن أرى وجهَ الحبيبْ
فسلامٌ وخُلودٌ
عندَ ذيّاك الودودْ
وسرورٌ أبديٌّ
فسلامٌ وخلودْ

During his University course he distinguished himself by gaining the English prize poem on three occasions. At one time he had intended studying Medicine; but this he abandoned for Theology, and took Holy Orders in 1815, his first curacy being in the neighbourhood of Wexford. In 1817, he removed to Marazion, in Cornwall. There, in 1818, he underwent a great spiritual change, which shaped and influenced the whole of his after life, the immediate cause being the illness and death of a brother cler… Go to person page >
