أيها الفادي الغفور ملجإي صر الدهور

Representative Text

1 - أيها الفادي الغفورْ
ملجإي صخرَ الدهورْ
أُمحُ إثمي يا رحيمْ
أنت عونٌ للأثيمْ
طهِّرَنّي بدماكْ
يا مُجيباً مَن دعاكْ

2 - أنت غفّارُ الذنوبْ
أنت ستّارُ العيوبْ
أنت يا ربَّ الهُدَى
كُن لنفسي مُرشِدا
كي أعيشَ الدهرَ لكْ
طاهراً مثل مَلَكْ

3 - ومتى حلَّ الأجلْ
وانتهى كلُّ عملْ
فأَنِلْني في حِماكْ
منزلاً قُربَ سناكْ
أيها الفادي الغفورْ
ملجإي صخرَ الدهورْ
