Representative Text

1 أيها الروحُ المنيرْ
أنت لي نِعمَ المنارْ
فامحُ ليلي ليصيرْ
مُشرِقاً مثلَ النهارْ

2 أيها الروحُ المُعينْ
طهِّر القلب الأثيمْ
كُن ملاذيَ الأمينْ
وأعِنّي يا رحيمْ

3 أنت يا روحَ العزاءْ
عزِّ قلبي مُشفقا
واشف جرحي بالدواءْ
وأزل كل الشقا

4 روحَ قدسِ الله دعْ
ضمن قلبي منزلكْ
كلُّ كرسيٍّ يقعْ
ويكونُ الملكُ لكْ
