يا نفس قد وافى يسوع

Full Text

1 يا نفسِ قد وافى يسوعْ
ربُّ الفدى القديرُ
شافيكِ من سُقمٍ يَروعْ
طبيبُكِ الخبيرُ

أحلى نشيدٍ في العُلى
والأرضِ لاسمِهِ حلا
فلْتُؤدهِ الملا
أبهجَ الثناءِ

2 قال المسيحُ ابنُ الإلهْ
إني غفرتُ إثمَكْ
سِرْ في سلامٍ للحياهْ
واطرَحْ عليَّ همَّكْ

3 ما دُمتَ تبغي صُحبتي
عوني إليكَ أَقبَلْ
لا تخشَ بأساً - قُوتي
بالضعفِ فيكَ تُكْملْ

4 من لي هنا أو في السما
يا سيدي سواكا
فاشدُدْ رجائي مُنعِما
بالروحِ مِن عُلاكا

5 مِرساة نفسي في ثبات
في وعدك الأمينِ
تبقي معي حتى الممات
والنشرِ يا معيني

6 لا هولَ قواتِ الجحيمْ
أخشى ولا المنونا
ما دمتُ في الفادي الكريمْ
أبقى المدى مصونا
