لي مقام بهيج سنا

Full Text

1 لي مقامٌ بهيجٌ سنا
مجدِهِ فاقَ نورَ النهارْ
في العُلى حيث فادي الورى
وجهُه مثلَ شمسٍ أنارْ

نلتقي عن قريبْ
حول عرشِ المجيدِ الحبيبْ

2 سوف نشدو لدى المُلتقى
حلو تسبيحِ فادٍ غفورْ
إذ به حاز ذاك الملا
راحةً مع كمال السرورْ

3 سوف نُهدي إلى ربِّنا
جُلَّ تسبيحِ شكرٍ عَميمْ
إذ حبانا ابنَهَ فادياً
مثلَ شاةٍ لموتٍ أليمْ

4 نلتقي في العُلى بعدما
ينتهي سيرُنا مِن هنا
حيث حُزنُ الردى ينتهي
ثم ننسى الشقا والعنا

5 حيث نُعطَى أكاليلَنا
لامتلاكٍ معَ المُنتصرْ
ذاك ربُّ الملوكِ العَلي
أسدٌ غالبٌ مُقتدرْ
