أمام ذي العرش اسجدوا

Representative Text

1 أمامَ ذي العرشِ اسجدوا
بفرحٍ مقَدّسِ
واْدروا يقينا أنهُ
مُبدي ومُحيي الأنفسِ

2 عنا غنِيُّ بأسُهُ
إذ قد برانا من ترابْ
لما ضللنا ردَّنا
إلى حظيرةِ الصوابْ

3 نحن جميعاً خلقُهُ
من كل نفسٍ وجسدْ
فأيُّ مجدٍ دائمٍ
لاسمك نهدي يا صمدْ

4 تزحَمُ أفواجُ الثنا
أبوابَ بارينا العلي
والأرضُ تملا دارَهُ
مدحاً بأعلى الزَّجلِ

5 أحكامُهُ عرضُ الفضا
وحبُّهُ طولُ الأبدْ
وحقُّهُ يبقى لنا
إذا انتهى دورُ الجلدْ
