سوف يأتي في سحاب

Full Text

1 سوف يأتي في سحابٍ
ذلِك الفادي الأمينْ
حولَه الأملاكُ أيضاً
معْ صُفوفِ الغالبينْ
سبِّحوهُ . سبِّحوهُ
يا جميعَ المؤمنينْ

2 سوف يأتي في سحابٍ
من ذُرَى المجدِ العظيمْ
وتَراهُ كلُّ عينٍ
من مُحِبٍّ وخَصيمْ
مجِّدوهُ . مجِّدوهُ
إنه الربُّ الكريمْ

3 سوف يأتي من علاهُ
كي يدين العالمينْ
فترى الأحياءَ حالاً
يَزحَمونَ الراقدينْ
يا إلهي . يا إلهي
حكمُك العدلُ المبينْ

4 آهِ ما أحسنَ يوماً
فيه ننظرُ الحبيبْ
من فدانا بدماهُ
قابلاً عارَ الصليبْ
يا معينُ . يا معينُ
أنت لي نِعمَ النصيبْ
