يا عوننا في ما مضى

Representative Text

1 يا عونَنا في ما مضى
رجاءَنا الوطيدْ
ملجأَنا في ضيقِنا
موطنَنا المجيدْ

2 في ظلِّ عرشِك احتَمَى
كلُّ المقدَّسينْ
عونُك يكفينا أيا
معقِلَنا الحصينْ

3 مِن قبلِ إبداعِ الثرى
أو مَنشإ الجِبالْ
أنت إلهُ المجدِ وال
عِزَّةِ والجلالْ

4 نظيرُ أمسِ المنقَضي
لديك ألفُ عامْ
وكهزيعِ الليلِ يا
حيُّ على الدوامْ

5 أيامُنا كسنةٍ
أو كَلإ الحقولْ
يُرى الغداةَ مُزهِراً
وفي المسا يزولْ

6 يا عونَنا في ما مضى
رجاءَنا المتينْ
كنْ حارساً دوماً لنا
موطنَنا الأمينْ
