أفادي أنت لنفسي النصيب

Representative Text

1- يا فاديَّ أنت لنفسي النصيبْ
وليس سِواك لقلبي يطيبْ
وأنت إلهي وربي المجيدْ
فحبي لربي لذاك يزيدْ

أحبك ولي بذلتَ الحياهْ
أحبك إذ بك نلتُ النجاهْ
وأنت صديقي العزيزُ الودودْ
فحبي إليك لذاك شديدْ

2- وفي ذي الحياة كما في المماتْ
أحبك يا مصدرَ البركاتْ
فبالخير دوماً علي تجودْ
وحبي إليك لذاك شديدْ

وإذ ألتقِ بكَ ثم أراكْ
3- أُمَتع نفسي بكَ في سماكْ
وأفرحُ في وطني ذا السعيدْ
فحبي إليك يا ربي شديدْ
