يا رب طفل قد أتاك

Representative Text

1 يا ربنا طفلٌ أتاك
رجاء وعد يُمتَلكْ
فاكتب له اسماً في سماك
لكي يكون الدهرَ لكْ

2 اغسلهُ من كل الذنوب
واجعله ذا قلب جديدْ
أنت على سَتر العيوب
تقدر إن كنت تريدْ

3 لا نبتغي مجدَ الرُّتَبْ
له ولا المالَ الجسيمْ
لكن خُلاصةُ الطلبْ
أن يكرمَ اسمكَ العظيمْ

4 بحسن إيمان دخلْ
يروم حفظَك الأمينْ
وعند أقدام الحملْ
مُلقىً فيا نِعمَ المعينْ
