حول عرش الله جيش

Representative Text

1 حول عرش الله جيشٌ
من صغارٍ طاهرينْ
جيش أبرارٍ كرامٍ
في سماه واقفينْ
يهتفون بابتهاجٍ
قائلين المجدُ لكْ

2 بيض أثوابٍ عليها
ذاتَ لونٍ لا يحولْ
سكنوا في فيض نورٍ
وسرورٍ لا يزولْ
يهتفون بابتهاجٍ
قائلين المجدُ لكْ

3 بدمِ الربِّ استطاعوا
للسما العليا الوصولْ
حيث مجدٌ وسرورٌ
وسلامٌ وقبولْ
يهتفون بابتهاجٍ
قائلين المجدُ لكْ

4 طلبوا نعمةَ ربٍّ
ههنا قبل الوفاهْ
فرأوه الآن جهراً
والتقوا ربَّ الحياهْ
يهتفون بابتهاجٍ
قائلين المجدُ لكْ
