Full Text

1 - يا لَصوتٍ رقيقٍ شَجيٍّ صداهْ
كالنسيمِ اللطيفِ العليلْ
صوتُ حبٍّ ينادي ويدعو الخُطاهْ
والعُطاشَ ليُروُوا الغليلْ

ألمسيحُ يقولُ تعالوا إلْي
أنا جئتُ للمتعبينْ
مستريحينَ ألقُوا الهمومَ علْي
نائلينَ الخلاصَ الثمينْ

2 - يا لَصوتِ حنينٍ ينادي العُطاشْ
أن يجيئوا لنبعِ المياهْ
يمتلونَ سروراً وروحَ انتعاشْ
من ينابيعِ نهرِ الحياهْ

3 - هوذا الروحُ يدعو كذاك العروسْ
إذ يقولانِ هيا تعالْ
فلنُلَبِّ النداءَ وندعُ النفوسْ
كي تفوزَ بحُسنِ المآلْ
