1 सलीब पर जब मैं करता ध्यान, कि मुआ उस पर रब-उल-नूर
सब नफे गिनूंगा नुकसान, तहकीर भी करूं सब गरूर.

2 न हो कि फख़र करूं अब, सिवा सलीब पर येसु की
दुनयावी कीमती तोहफे सब, छोड़ दूंगा खातिर येसु की.

3 देख उसके सर पर ताज खारदार, हाथ, पांव, पसली घायल है
यह कैसा दुख और कैसा प्यार, इस प्यार के क्यों न कायल हों.

4 गर तुझे देऊं कुल जहान, तो ऐ शफीक खून बहा
बस आपकी कुल बा-दिल-ओ-जां, गुज़ारता हूं खुदा-बन्दा.

5 मसीह ने सहा दुख जिससे, तां बचें सारे आदमज़ाद
हो हम्द सब ख़ून खरीदों से, अभी और अब्द उल-आबाद.

In some hymnals, the editors noted that a hymn's author is unknown to them, and so this artificial "person" entry is used to reflect that fact. Obviously, the hymns attributed to "Author Unknown" "Unknown" or "Anonymous" could have been written by many people over a span of many centuries. Go to person page >
