ينبوع جود من دم زاك جرى

Representative Text

1 - ينبوعُ جودٍ من دمٍ زاكٍ جرى
من جسمِ فادينا الذي أحيا الورى
مُطهِّرٌ - مَنِ اغتسلْ
فيهِ اكتسى بِرَّ الحملْ

2 - يا حملاً قد مات عن جنسِ البشرْ
هذا الدمُ الثمينُ دائمُ الأثرْ
حتى يُنَجي بالسلامْ
بِيعَتَه على التمامْ

3 - لما رأيتُ سيلَ هاتيكَ الدما
بعين إيمانٍ به يُنـفى العمى
قد صار حبُّ من فدى
موضوعَ شُكري أبدا

4 - إذا غدا هذا اللسانُ الأبكمُ
في قبرِه أخرسَ لا يُكلِّمُ
تشدو بحمدٍ أعظمِ
نفسي لجودِ المنعِمِ
