يا سيدي ما أروع الوجودا

Representative Text

1 يا سيدي ما أروع الوجودا
حيث أرى ما صنعت يداكْ
البحرَ والبطاحَ والنُّجودا
وأنجُمَ السماءِ والأفلاكْ

قرار
يا ربُّ ما أعجبَ أعمالكْ
جميعها تشهدُ لكْ

2 حين أجولُ عبر كلِّ حقلِ
أُمتِّعُ الأنظار في الضحى
يُطرِبُني الغديرُ وسطَ السهلِ
والطيرُ إذ يشدو على الرُّبى

3 عندئذٍ إذكر حبَّ ربي
ومَن جرت في جلجُثا دماهْ
على الصليبِ قلبهُ وقلبي
تصافيا ونالني رضاه

4 وحينما يهبطُ مِن علاهُ
فادي الورى وصاحبُ الوعدِ
يُقيمُني للمجدِ في حِماهُ
مرددا ترنيمةَ العهدِ
