إن سلكنا لج بحر

Representative Text

1 إن سلكنا لجَّ بحرٍ
هاديءٍ نحو النعيمْ
ووفِقنا الريح كان ال
فضلُ لله الكريمْ

2 وإذا هاجتْ وغطَّتْ
لجةُ البحر السفينْ
عجَّلَ السَّفرُ اقتراباً
من ربوعِ الأطهرينْ

3 هب لنا اللهم أنّا
كل ما تهوى نطيعْ
في سرورٍ واكتئابٍ
واستجِبنا يا سميعْ

4 واجعل الروحَ المُعزّي
ساكناً هذي القلوبْ
فيُعزّينا إذا ما
أفنتِ الصبرَ الخطوبْ

5 يُنقذُ الله سريعاً
آلَهُ مِن كل ضيقْ
ولهم طُرّاً رفيقٌ
في الأسى نعمَ الرفيقْ
