أنت تدعو للوليمة

Representative Text

1 أنت تدعو للوليمهْ
كلَّ خاطٍ يا رحيمْ
بالمواعيد الكريمهْ
صوتُ حبٍّ للأثيمْ
ذُبحَ العجلُ المُسَمّنْ
فتعالوا يا خطاهْ
فوه قوتٌ لا يُثَمّنْ
لخطاةٍ وعُصاهْ

2 لكمُ الثوبُ تهيّا
فالبسوهُ آمنينْ
وادخلوا عرساً بهيّاً
ثم كونوا شاكرينْ
كل شيءٍ قد تجهَّزْ
فعليكم بالحضورْ
تلتقونَ المجدَ يُكنزْ
في حمى تلك القصورْ

3 بكمُ الأملاكُ تفرحْ
يا خطاةً تائبينْ
وإلهُ المجد يفتحْ
لكمُ الباب الأمينْ
مدَّ أيدي اللطف ربي
فاتبَعيه يا نفوسْ
في خضوعٍ ثم حبٍّ
كعريسٍ وعروسْ
