Sayonee Lyrics

Har dam naam sambhaal saaeen da
Har dam naam sambhaal saaeen da
 Ta toon asthar theevein

Cling to your Lord’s name at every moment
and with each breath
You may thus become steadfast and firm

Har dam naam sambhaal saaeen da
 Ta toon asthar theevein

Cling to your Lord’s name at every moment
and with each breath
You may thus become steadfast and firm

Kahwe Husain Faqeer saaeen da
 Main nahi bas tu

Husain, God’s lowly servant, says
There is no me, only You!

Sayonee
Sayonee
Chain ik pal nahi
Chain ik pal nahi
Chain ik pal nahi
 Aur koyi hall nahi

O my dear friends
O my dear friends
Not a moment of peace
Not a moment of peace
Not a moment of peace
And no way out

Sayonee
 Sayonee

O my dear friends
O my dear friends

Kaun mode muhaar
Muhaar
Kaun mode muhaar…
 Kaun mode muhaar…

Who will turn the camel round?
…turn the camel round?
Who will turn the camel round?
Who will turn the camel round?

Koyi saanwal nahi
Chain ik pal nahi
Chain ik pal nahi
Chain ik pal nahi
 Aur koyi hall nahi

Punnun, my lover, is long gone
Not a moment of peace
Not a moment of peace
Not a moment of peace
And no way out

Sayonee
 Sayonee

O my dear friends
O my dear friends

Kya bashar ki bisaat
Bisaat
Kya bashar ki bisaat
 Kya bashar ki bisaat

What is the worth of a mortal being?
…worth…
What is the worth of a mortal being?
What is the worth of a mortal being?

Aaj hai kal nahi
Chain ik pal nahi
Chain ik pal nahi
Chain ik pal nahi
 Aur koyi hall nahi

Here today, and gone tomorrow
Not a moment of peace
Not a moment of peace
Not a moment of peace
And no way out

Sayonee
 Sayonee

O my dear friends
O my dear friends

Zaahir har ik manzar mein
 Tu har pas-manzar mein tu (x2)

You are manifest in all seen and unseen things

Masjid mein tu
Mandir mein tu
 Jeewan saagar mein tu

In the mosque
In the temple
In the ocean of existence

Saaeen tu hi
Mera saccha saaeen tu hai
Saaeen tu hi
Mera saccha saaeen tu hai
Main tera banda, tu hi mera maula saaeen
Tu hi mera maula saaeen
Sayonee
Sayonee
Sayonee
Sayonee
Allaah
Allaah
Allaah
 Allaah

In the mosque
In the temple
In the ocean of existence
O Lord, only You
You are my true Lord
O Lord, only You
You are my true Lord
I am your servant, and you are my beloved Master
You are my beloved Master
O my dear friends
O my dear friends
O my dear friends
O my dear friends
Allah!
Allah!
Allah!
Allah!
