Adam Is Received By The Spirit Of The Earth
Mashriq Se Ubharte Huwe Suraj Ko Zara Dekh
Open your eyes and look above,
Look at the streak of dawn;
Ayyam-e-Judai Ke Sitam Dekh, Jafa Dekh
Look at the veiling of the vision;
Look at the banishment unfair;
Look at the battle of hope and fear.
Ye Gunbad-e-Aflak, Ye Khamosh Fazaen
Yours are the clouds, the rains, the skies,
Yours are the winds, the storms,
Theen Paish-e-Nazar Kal To Farishton Ki Adaen
The woods, the mountains, the rivers are yours;
The world of the angels was a void;
Look at the peopled earth, which is yours.
Dekhain Ge Tujhe Door Se Gardoon Ke Sitare
You wilt rule it like a king;
The stars will gaze in wonder;
Pohanche Ge Falak Tak Teri Aahon Ke Shirare
Your vision will encompass the earth;
Your sighs will reach the heavens;
Look at the power of your pain and passion.
Abad Hai Ek Taza Jahan Tere Hunar Mein
The spark in you is a radiant sun;
A new world lives in you;
Jannat Teri Pinhan Hai Tere Khoon-e-Jigar Mein
You care not for a borrowed heaven;
Your life‐blood has it concealed;
Look at the reward of anguish and toil.
Tu Jinse-e-Mohabbat Ka Khireedar Azal Se
Your lyre has an eternal plaintive string,
Panting with the passion of love;
Mehnat Kash-o-Khoon Raiz-o-Kam Azaar Azal Se
You guard eternal secrets divine,
And live a life of obedient power;
Look at the world as shaped by your will.
