ربنا هبنا مساء نعمة قبل المنام

Representative Text

1 ربنا امنحنا مساء
نعمة قبل المنامْ
وامنح القلب سلاما
وأزل عنه الظلامْ
نحن يا رب خطاةُ
قد سلكنا في الذنوبْ
نقنا من كل إثم
ماحيا عنا العيوبْ

2 نجنا من كل ضيق
ربنا وقت الرقاد
واحمنا واسهر علينا
يا مخلص العباد
أنت يا رب قدير
لك عين لا تنام
ذو اعتناء بالبرايا
حافظ كل الأنام

3 إن أتى في الليل سُقمٌ
أو دنا أمر رهيبْ
عزِ قلبي يا سروري
واشف نفسي يا طبيبْ
ثم أبهجني بلطفٍ
عندما يبدو الصباح
واملأ القلب سرورا
مانحا منك النجاحْ
