صرخ الأعمى ابن طيما

Representative Text

1 صرخ الأعمى ابن طيما
يا يسوع ارحم فتاك
نال غيري منك برءا
فأعن ضعفي كذاك
الجموع انتهرته
غضبا وهو يزيد
فدعاه الرب: أَقبل
ثم سلني ما تريد

2 لَم يُرد مالا سيفنى
منه مع فقرٍ عَلاه
بل بغى رحمة رب
ليس يعطيها سواه
قال أرجو نور عين
أنت تعطيها البصر
أبصرَت عيناه حالا
فاقتفاه وشكر

3 هوذا اسمعه ينادي
بتسابيح النشيد
أنظروا يا أصدقائي
رحمة الفادي المجيد
ليتما كل ضرير
يعرف الشافي الوحيد
ويوافيه ليُعطى
بصرا منه جديد

The religious fits of his boyhood changed into settled infidelity, through the study of Shaftesbury and… Go to person page >
