ما الكون إلا صفحة

Representative Text

1 ما الكونُ إلا صفحةٌ
يقرأُها الجميعْ
لأنه يُنبِئُنا
عن حكمة البديعْ

2 أقوالُ ربنا العلي
مع كل ذي الكيانْ
شهادةٌ لمجدهِ
لمنتهى الزمان

3 وكل مخلوقاته
تحيا وتوجدُ
بأمرهِ وهو لها
يرعى ويرصُدُ

4 نعمتهُ مثلُ الندى
على ذُرى لبنانْ
تشفي وتُحيي النفسَ وال
ـلوبَ والأذهانْ

5 فلاسمه الشعوبُ وال
أكوانُ تحمَدُ
وكل أجناد السما
والأرضِ تسجُدُ

6 يا ربِّ قد أريتني
أمجادَ ذي الأكوانْ
فهبْ لعين النفسِ أن
تراك بالإيمانْ

ST. AGNES (Dykes)

John B. Dykes (PHH 147) composed ST. AGNES for [Jesus the Very Thought of Thee]. Dykes named the tune after a young Roman Christian woman who was martyred in A.D. 304 during the reign of Diocletian.
