يا سامعا صوت الدعا

Representative Text

1 - يا سامعا صوتَ الدعا
أنصِتْ لصوتٍ خشعا
وعُمَّنا منَ السما
بالبركات أجمعا

2 - ها نحن نرجو وعدَ من
ينيلُنا ما نطلبُ
فانعِم لنا يا ربَّنا
بروح قدسٍ يُسكبُ

3 - إن كان يُصغي والدٌ
إلى بنيه مُقبلا
وكان بالحب الوفي
يُعطي بنيه منزلا

4 - فكم إلهي بالحري
يحب حباً صادقا
ويستجيبُ عبدَه
إذا دعاه واثقا

5 - يا أبتاه في السما
إسمع بنيكَ واقبلِ
وليحضُرِ الروحُ هنا
حتى المكان يمتلي

6 - فتُضرَمُ القلوبُ من
حبٍّ سماويٍّ وَقَدْ
ويشكُرُ اسمَكَ الأُلى
فديتهم إلى الأبد
