Father O father

Why do you do this

Why you carve those statues of wood

And fashion those idols out of clay

Father O father

Why do you do this

Why do you bow down and pray

To all of those empty gods you’ve made

I know such a far better way

There is only one God

لا إِله الا الله

Lord about the earth and skies

Who knows all the answers to where what and why

There is only one God

لا إِله الا الله

I’ve looked through the sky

Seen the moon and stars

Come and quickly fade away

I’ve seen the sun so strong and bright

Die at the end of the day

I’ve seen the perfection of all creation

In every creature and leave

And I don't understand any woman or man

Who denies the One to believe

There is only one God

لا إِله الا الله

You will not stay and He‘ll not die

لاإِلهالاالله

People O people

why won't you heed my call to straight way

Why put your fate in gods of gold and clay

They crumble away

They have no life

They cause no harm

And they do no good

There is only one God

لا إِله الا الله

I don't understand

why you choose to deny

لا إِله الا الله

People O people

you’ve tried to break me

You’ve called me a fool and a liar

But I will not burn in your flame

For fate in Allah will cool any fire

So hate me or hurt me Do what you will

Even banish me from this land

I will pray to Allah that The truth come to you

And I pray that someday You will all understand

There is only one God

لا إِله الا الله

Lord about the earth and skies

Who will not fade and who will not die

No I don't understand

Why you choose to deny

That Allah knows the answers to where what and why

There is only one God

لا إِله الا الله
