يسوع نادى حينما

Full Text

1 يسوعُ نادى حينما
أذاقهُ العِدى المنونْ
يا أبتاهْ اغفِرْ لهمْ
لجهلِهِمْ ما يفعلونْ

2 لم يشكُهُمْ لكنَّه
من أجلِهم أجرى دماهْ
وكان فيهم شافعاً
يرفعُ للآب الصلاهْ

3 قد ذاقَ فاديَّ العنا
عنِّيْ وأصنافَ المِحَنْ
طوعاً لكي يُغفَرَ لْي
فينتهي كلُّ حَزَنْ

4 وهكذا كَفَّرَ عن
خطيتي فوقَ الصليبْ
محتملاً بالصبرِ مِن
جرّائِها الموتَ الرهيبْ

5 فيا لَفرطِ جودِهِ
على الخطاةِ التائبينْ
إذ خلصَ الناسَ كما
أعطاهُمُ إرثَ البنينْ

After various tunes had been set to this text, Gladden insisted on the use of MARYTON. Composed by H. Percy Smith (b. Malta, 1825; d.
