إن تغب شمس النهار

Representative Text

1 - إن تغب شمس النهار
عن سما هذا الوجود
رب كن نعم المنار
واهدني سبل الخلود
فـي ظلمتي

القرار
نور نور نور
يجلو الظلام
نور فادي أراه
هاديا كل الأنام
نحو الصلـيب

2 - لست أرهب الحمام
عندما يأتي المغيب
يبعث الله السلام
في دجى الليل الرهيب
لـمهـجتي

3 - شمس بر وضياء
ليس يعروها أفول
في جناحيها الشفاء
وبها السقم يزول
من علتي

4 - حارسي المولى القدير
لا اكتئاب لا اضطراب
وجهه الزاهي المنير
ما له قط احتجاب
عن مقلتي
