رأيت الحجر الملقى من البنائينا

Representative Text

1 رأيتُ الحجر المُلقى
منَ البنائينا
على الزاوية استرقى
ونال التمكينا

2 وهذا من لدنْ ربي
بفيض الإنعامِ
عجيبٌ عندنا يُنبي
عن اللطف السامي

3 هو اليوم الذي أبدعْ
لنا ربُّ المجدِ
به فلنبتهج أجمعْ
ونهتفْ بالحمدِ

4 مباركٌ هو الآتي
لنا باسم الرب
إلهي أنت في ذاتي
مقيمٌ في الحُجبِ

5 إلهي أنت بارينا
لك الشكر الطامي
وأنت اليومَ فادينا
لك المجدُ السامي
