في عرش فادينا البها

Full Text

1 في عرشِ فادينا البها
قد حلَّ والجمالْ
ورأسُهُ مُكَللٌ
بالمجدِ والجلالْ

2 يفيضُ يَنبوعُ النِّعَمْ
مِن شَفَةِ القديرْ
ومجدُهُ بين الأممْ
ليس له نظيرْ

3 أجملُ من كلِّ جميلْ
ومالئُ السما
أبقى إلى جيلٍ فجيلْ
له مرنما

4 لو كان لي ألفُ فؤادْ
أعطيتُها ربي
فإنه مُعطي المرادْ
ومنيةُ القلبِ
