شكرا لرب فضله

Representative Text

1 شكرا لرب فضله
بحر طما زخار
يروي الثرى من جوده
إذ يرسل الأمطار

جميع ما نحيا به
من فضله العميم
فلنشكرنه دائما
لحبه العظيم

2 يُبدي لنا من شمسهِ
حرّا به نحيا
ومِن نُسَيماتِ الصَّبا
وغيثهِ نُروى

3 كل الورى من خلق من
قد أبدع الأكوان
وزان بالنجم الدجى
فأبهج الإنسان

4 وأطعم الأطيار مِن
أثمار غرسهِ
فكم لنا يُعطي إذا
من عرش قدسهِ

5 نشكرك اللهم من
أجل عطاياكا
فالمال والصحة وال
حياةُ جَدواكا

6 فاقبل إذا يا ربنا
من أجل ذا الإحسان
منا قلوبا ملؤها
عواطف الشكران
