يا رب طفل قد أتاك

Representative Text

1 يا رب طفلٌ قد أتاك
رجاء وعد يُمتَلكْ
فاكتب له اسماً في سماك
لكي يكون الدهرَ لكْ
إحفظه في حال الصلاحْ
واجعله ذا قلبٍ جديدْ
وافتح له باب النجاحْ
وهَب له العمرَ المديدْ

2 لسنا نصلي للرُّتَبْ
له ولا المالَ الجسيمْ
وإنما جلُّ الطلبْ
أن يكرمَ اسمكَ العظيمْ
بحسن إيمان دخلْ
يروم حفظَك الأمينْ
وعند أقدام الحملْ
مُلقىً فيا نِعمَ المعينْ
