يا ليت لي ألف لسان

Full Text

1 يا ليتَ لي ألفَ لسانْ
لأحمَد الفادي
أحمدَ ربي المستعانْ
وفضلَه البادي

2 ذاك الذي يُسَكِّنُ
خوفي وأحزاني
وذكرُهُ يُستحسَنُ
في سمعِ آذاني

3 يكسرُ شوكةَ الخَطا
ويعتقُ المسبي
ودمُهُ الوافي العطا
مُطهرٌ قلبي

4 حمداً لذي الحقِّ الأمينْ
والمرشدِ العظيمْ
والشكر يُهدَى كلَّ حينْ
لربنا الكريمْ

5 هيا ارفعوا صوتَ الثنا
لذلك الفادي
لمن هدانا كلَّنا
بنورِهِ الهادي
