THE EARTH IS GODʹS
Kon Daryaon Ki Moujon Se Uthata Hai Sahab
Who rears the seed in the darkness of the earth?
Who lifts the cloud up from the ocean’s waves?
Khak Ye Kis Ki Hai, Kis Ka Hai Ye Noor-e-Aftab?
Who summoned from the West the fruitful wind?
Whose soil is this? Or whose that light of the sun?
Mousamon Ko Kis Ne Sikhlayi Hai Khu'ay Inqilab?
Who filled the grain like pearls, the ripe corn’s ear?
Who taught the months by instruction to revolve?
Tere Aba Ki Nahin, Teri Nahin, Meri Nahin
Landlord! This broad plough‐land is not yours, it is not yours;
Nor thy father’s land; it is not yours, it is not mine.
