حياة الخلد

Representative Text

1- ها كلُّ شمسٍ لمغيبْ
ومنتهى العمرُ قريبْ
تدعو السما فلا تجيبْ
أين تقضي حياةَ الخُلدْ

القرار:
حياةَ الخُلدْ، حياةَ الخُلدْ
أين تقضي حياةَ الخُلدْ

2- مَن قبِلوا ربَّ الفداءْ
وترَكوا سُبْلَ الخُطاءْ
نالوا نصيباً في السماءْ
أين تقضي حياةَ الخُلدْ

3- مَن هجروا الربَّ الحبيبْ
واندفعوا نحو اللهيبْ
يُدرِكُهمْ عارٌ رهيبْ
أين تقضي حياةَ الخُلدْ

4- تُب واقتبِل إلى الفداءْ
واقبَل هُدى ربَّ السماءْ
فاصحَ ولَبِّ ذا النداءْ
أين تقضي حياةَ الخُلدْ
