يقرع المسيح باب الفؤاد

Representative Text

1 - يقرعُ المسيحُ بابَ الفؤادِ
إنه يبغي الدخولْ
صوتُهُ العذبُ اللطيف يُنادي
فأجِبهُ بالقَبولْ

تعالْ - تعالْ
خاطئاً عيّا تعالْ
هوذا يدعو بصوتِه الهادي
شـارداً هيا تعالْ

2 - ربُّنا بالحبِّ حقاً تفانى
داعياً أشقى الخطاهْ
لطفُ فادينا أباحَ الغُفرانا
فانتبِهْ واقبَلْ فِداهْ

3 - كيف في تِيهِ الخطايا تَهيمُ
سالكاً سُبْلَ الهلاكْ
وهو حنّانٌ غفورٌ رحيمُ
يبتغي الآنَ فِداكْ

4 - أنت يا من تتوانى فعجِّلْ
قبلما يأتي الحسابْ
كيف تنجو والخلاصَ تؤجِّلْ
قد دنا يومُ العِقابْ

5 - فرصةُ العُمرِ تطيرُ سريعا
آذنَتْ شمسُ المغيبْ
عاجلاً تُبْ واعترِفْ ليسوعا
إذ بك الصوتُ يَهيبْ

He lat­er ex­pand­ed, open­ing a store to sell pi­an­os, or­gans and sheet mu­sic. Both a lyr­i­cist and com­pos­er, he en­sured he would al­ways re­mem­ber words or mel­o­dies that came to him at odd times: "No mat­ter where I am, at home or ho­tel, at the store or tra­vel­ing, if an idea or theme comes to me that I deem wor­thy of a song, I jot it down in verse.
