يرعاني راعي الأمين

Representative Text

1 - يرعاني راعي الأمين
بالنور والحق المبين
يرشدني في كل حين
بالحب واليد اليمين

يقودني يقودني
بيده يمسكني
نعم هو يقودني
يمينه ترشدني

2 - في شدة الحزن المذيب
وفي سروري العجيب
في النور والدجى الرهيب
يقودني الراعي الحبيب

3 - أمسكني ربي بيمناك
لا أبتغي شخصا سواك
كل عزائي في رضاك
حتى أراك في سماك
