تراح نفسي أمنا

Representative Text

1 تُراحُ نفسي أمناً
في أذرُعِ المسيحْ
بحبِّهِ مُحاطاَ
في صدرِهِ الفسيحْ
أَصغُوا ففوقَ الماءِ
وأبهجِ الحُقولْ
ملائكُ السماءِ
لي صوتُها محمولْ

قرار
تُراحُ نفسي أمناً
في أذرعِ المسيحْ
بحبِّه مُحاطاً
في صدرِه الفسيحْ

2 إن كان حزني طالا
واشتدَّ تعذيبي
أكثرُها قد زالا
أيامُ تَجريبي
إن هاجتِ الخطايا
قصداً لتدميري
فعالِمُ الخفايا
ولِيُّ تحريري

3 يسوعُ ملجا قلبي
قد ماتَ من أجلي
صخرُ الدهور الباقي
مولايَ ذو الفضلِ
مُنتظرٌ بالصبرِ
شعاعَ ذاك النورْ
ذَهابَ ليلي المُرِّ
صباحِيَ المشهورْ
