Full Text

1 - أيا مَن به أستطيبُ الهناءْ
ومَن في البلا أستعينْ
وفيه سروري وكلُّ العزاءْ
رجائي وكنزي الثمينْ

2 - لخيرِ المراعي تقودُ الخِرافْ
لِترعى مُروجَ الوَدادْ
فكيف أتِيهُ بوادي الجفافْ
وأنت ملاذُ العبادْ

3 - بمرآهُ يملا السماءَ السرورْ
يسودُ الأنامَ الهناءْ
وفي قولِه تستنيرُ العُصورْ
وتشدو نشيدَ الثناءْ

4 - أراعيَّ صوتُك يجلو أسايْ
فإن تَدْعُ أُسرِعْ إليكْ
فسدِّد خُطايَ وجدِّد قُوايْ
فكلُّ اعتمادي عليكْ
