حبيك زده يا خلي الودود

Full Text

1 حُبِّيكَ زِدْه يا
خِلّي الودودْ
واسمعْ لطِلبتي
عندَ السُّجودْ
إذ كلُّ بُغيتي
فَرْطُ المحبةِ
فرْطُ المحبةِ

2 قد رُمتُ ههنا
نيلَ الهنا
والآن في ربي
كلُّ المنى
إذ كل مُنيتي
فرْطُ المحبةِ
فرْطُ المحبةِ

3 لا أرهبُ الحَزَنْ
ولا المِحَنْ
لا بل تَفيضُ لي
منها المِننْ
إن زارَ مُهجتي
فرْطُ المحبةِ
فرْطُ المحبةِ

4 وحينما يدنو
مني الأجلْ
يا نفسِ ردِّدي
حَمدَ الحَملْ
تحظَيْ بطلعه
ربِّ المحبةِ
رب المحبةِ
