إسمعوا صوت السرور

Representative Text

1 إسمعوا صوتَ السرورْ
ربُّنا الموعودُ زارْ
فلْنُهلِّلْ بحُبورْ
للذي الكونَ أنارْ
حلَّ فيه فيضُ روحْ
نارُه الجَلي يشُبْ
صدرُه منه تلوحْ
قُوةٌ عِلمٌ وحُبْ

2 يُطلِقُ الأسرى بياسْ
من دُجى السِّجنِ الشديدْ
شقَّ أبوابَ النُّحاسْ
مثلَ أقفاِل الحديدْ
جاءَ من أسمى السما
نورُ أبصارِ العقولْ
فوقَ أجفانِ العَمَى
منه نورٍ لا يحولْ

3 جابرُ القلبِ الكسيرْ
شافياً جُرحَ النفوسْ
فيه قد غنَّى الفقيرْ
وانجلى الوجهُ العبوسْ
بك ترتيلُ الهنا
لاقَ يا ربَّ السلامْ
في العُلى حتى الدُّنى
لاسمك السامي المقامْ
