Full Text

1 - يا خاطيءُ اسمَعَنْ نِدا
فادي الورى نورِ الهُدى
إنْ تَبتَغي نَيلَ الفِدا
لبِّ ذا الندا

فلبِّ النِدا
فلبِّ النِدا
في الحالِ إن
تبتَغِ الفِدا

2 - قُمْ لبِّ ذيّاك النِدا
فالعمرُ ولّى وانقَضى
وقبل أن تَلْقى الرَّدى
لبِّ ذا الندا

3 - فإن تكُن تبغي الهَنا
لبِّ الندا فيه الغِنى
تنَلْ بربِّك المنى
فلبِّ الندا

4 - نداؤه عمَّ البشرْ
وحبُّه يجلو الكَدرْ
فإن ترُمْ نيلَ الظَّفرْ
لبِّ ذا الندا
