أيها الروح المعزي عزّ نفسي بالسرور

Representative Text

1 أيها الروح المعزي
عزِّ نفسي بالسرورْ
وأفِض في القلب نوراً
منك يسمو كل نورْ

2 أبصَرَتْ عيني جموعاً
تطلبُ الملجا الأمينْ
وجدوا نعمةَ ربٍّ
فاقتفوهُ شاكرينْ

3 إنني عبد ضعيفٌ
أيها المولى القديرْ
قوِّني ثبِّت رجائي
وأنرني يا مُنيرْ

4 أعطني روحاً وديعاً
سالكاً سُبْلَ الخشوعْ
ساهرَ القلبِ بعينٍ
ليسَ يغشاها الهجوعْ

5 إنني أشهدُ جَهراً
أنك الهادي الوحيدْ
فاهدني ما دمتُ حيّاً
وامنحِ القلبَ الجديدْ
