Representative Text

1- فاقت أمانة ربي الأوصاف
لا تتغير ولا تحول
دوما يجدد لنا الألطاف
لا تتبدل ولا تزول

القرار
وفاؤك عظيم وفاؤك عظيم
كل صباح وفير جديد
كل إعوازي أعدت لي يدك
سام وفاؤك لي ومجيد

2- صيفا شتاء ربيعا حصادا
كل النجوم بالصمت تذيع
كل الوجود أحياء جمادا
يوما فيوما تنادي الجميع

3- إن حضورك معي مرشدي
يهب الصفح ونور اليقين
قوة اليوم وهدى للغد
يمنحُ الكل لنا كل حين
