ليست لنا الوطن

Representative Text

1 ليست لنا الوطنْ
هذي الديارْ
إذ ينتهي الزمنْ
مثلَ البخارْ
كم راحلٍ مضى
عمرُهُ قد انقضى
بأمرِ ذي القضا
عنا وسارْ

2 لا نبتغي البقا
في ذا الوطنْ
إذ قد تحققا
دَرجُ الكفنْ
لا فرق في المسيرْ
بين طفل أو كبيرْ
إذ ربنا القديرْ
حدَّ الزمنْ

3 فلنقصد السما
حيث السرورْ
إذ قد ترنَّما
جمعٌ شكورْ
باقين للدوامْ
نحمد الباري الأنامْ
حيث انتفى الظلامْ
مدى الدهورْ

4 ما دامتِ الحياهْ
في ذي الديارْ
فلنُهد للإلهْ
كلَّ الوقارْ
لأنه المجيب
مَن دعاه لا يخيبْ
إذ يقتني النصيبْ
عند القرارْ
