Full Text

1 - يا ربِّ عَرِّفني المزيدْ
عن نعمةِ الفادي المجيدْ
عن حبِّه الحبِّ العجيبْ
عنِ الخلاصِ بالصليبْ

زِدْ ربِّ إرشادي
بنعمةِ الفادي
لكي أُذيعَ في الأنامْ
بُشراكَ يا ماحي الأثامْ

2 - يا من تُواصِلُ النِّعَمْ
زدني بعِلمِك الأتَمْ
أَنعِمْ عليَّ بالكثيرْ
أرشِد بروحِك المنيرْ

3 - من عرشِه السامي الذُّرى
مطمحُ آمالِ الورى
يأتي ليملِك الأنامْ
يسوعُ سيدُ السلامْ
