ما أحسن الجموع

Representative Text

1 - ما أحسَنَ الجُموعْ
في موضِعِ الصلاهْ
تَنفي مِنَ العينِ الهُجوعْ

2 - ما أحسن السُّجودْ

فإنه ربُّ الوُجودْ
والكلَّ قد صَنعْ

3 - ما أحسن الجلوسْ
في بيتِهِ المنيرْ
تحيا به كلُّ النفوسْ
لأنه القديرْ

4 - يا أيها الأنامْ
قوموا ورنِّموا
وكرِّروا على الدوامْ
حمداً وعظموا

5 - أُحِبُّ أن أكونْ
بينَ المرَنِّمينْ
في حضرة الآبِ الحنونْ
هناكَ كلَّ حينْ
