أيها النائم ما هذا السبات

Representative Text

1 أيها النائم ما هذا السُّباتْ
قم وقف لله أيامَ الصِّبا
اطَّرِحْ عنك الكرى فالوقتُ فاتْ
وعلت شمسُ الضُّحى فوقَ الرُّبى

أيها النائم ما هذا السباتْ
قم وقف لله أيام الصبا

2 أيها الخاطئُ قم مَرَّ الزمنْ
ودنتْ شمسُك من أُفْقِ الغروبْ
فاترُكِ الظلمةَ من قبل الكفنْ
وأجب مولاك علاَّمَ الغيوبْ

3 أيها الكسلانُ أسرع فالنهارْ
عنك ماضٍ مثلَ برقٍ يلمعُ
وإلهُ الكَرْمِ باقٍ في انتظارْ
فاغنمِ الوقتَ الذي لا يرجِعُ

4 فلماذا أنتَ بطّالٌ تَذَرْ
كلَّ ما يبغيه مولاك الأزلْ
إن رب الكرمِ إياك انتظرْ
فانهَضنْ في الحال واشرَعْ في العملْ

The popularity of this hymn is partly due to ST. GERTRUDE, the marching tune that Arthur S. Sullivan (PHH 46) composed for this text.
