Representative Text

1 رب هب فتاك يقضي ال
عمرَ يشدو بثناكْ
اشغِل اللسانَ حتى
يرفع الثنا قضاكْ
يا كريمُ
يرتجي الفتى رضاكْ

2 إنني أذيع جَهراً
حق ربِّ كلِّ ربْ
مُسرعٌ لدى رضاهْ
مُبطيءٌ لدى الغضبْ
يا حليمُ
منك وحدك الطلبْ

3 صنعك العجيبُ يبدي
كلَّ حكمةٍ لنا
فاجعل العباد تعنو
لاسمك السامي السني
يا حكيمُ
أنت معدِن الغِنى

4 دع بني الزمانِ معهُ
يشكرون بالنشيدْ
واجلُ نَغمَتي سروراً
في زماننا العتيدْ
يا عظيمُ
نحن أضعف العبيدْ

5 كيف نستطيع وصفاً
للذي علا وَفاقْ
طُرقهُ العظامُ جلَتْ
شكرُنا بها يُساقْ
يا رحيمُ
فيك ذا المديحُ لاقْ
