Qawwali lyrics l.jpg
Qawwali Lyrics

Selected Lyrics from Allah Hoo, a popular qawwali song.

Artist: Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan

Allah Hoo, Allah Hoo, Allah Hoo----------

YOU are the provider of the fruits of the garden

Every leaf says YOU are the Deity

I depend on YOUR Grace and generosity

YOU are my creator, my Master and my Deity

Allah Hoo, Allah Hoo, Allah Hoo----------

Everyone supplicates to you YOU when at prayer

All the supplicants say: YOU are the object             

Once the curtains of remissness were drawn, it was revealed

That YOU are present everywhere and in every human being

Allah Hoo, Allah Hoo, Allah Hoo----------

  • Cat Stevens in the 60s:

  • Song: The Wind

  • I listen to the wind to the wind of my soul Where I'll end up well I think, only God really knows I've sat upon the setting sun But never, never never never I never wanted water once No, never, never, never I listen to my words but they fall far below I let my music take me where my heart wants to go I swam upon the devil's lake But never, never never never I'll never make the same mistake No, never, never, never

  • Cat Stevens in the 90s:

  • Song: God is the Light

  • How great the wonders of the heavens And the timeless beauty of the night How great -- then how great the creator? And its star like priceless jewels far beyond the reach of kings Bow down for the Shepard guiding him home But how many eyes are closed to the wonder of this night? Like pearls, hidden, deep beneath a dark stream of desires But like dreams vanish with the call to prayer And the dawn extinguishes night - here too are signs
