حبيك يا ربي يزيد

Full Text

1 حُبِّيكَ يا ربي يزيدْ
عن عالمٍ يَفنَى
إذ قد وهبتني المزيدْ
من مجدِك الأسنى

حُبِّيكَ لا أنساه يا
مَن مُتَّ عن ذنبي
ودمَكَ الذي جرى
مُطهراً قلبي

2 حبيك يا ربي يزيدْ
عن حبِّ خُلاّني
أختار صوتَكَ على
أصواتِ إخواني

3 حبيك يا ربي يزيدْ
عن عالمِ الغرورْ
لي فيك كلُّ ما أريدْ
من راحمٍ غفورْ

4 حبيك يا ربي يزيدْ
عن بهجة الدنيا
لذاك أبغي الارتقا
لدارك العُليا
