سوف يأتي في سحاب

Representative 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 يدينَ العالَمينْ
فترى الأحياءَ حالاً
يَزحَمونَ الراقدينْ
يا إلهي. يا إلهي
حكمُك العدلُ المبينْ

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