Sami Yusuf - Forgotten Promises Lyrics

Written by: Sami Yusuf, Will Knox, Dr. Shihab Ghanem

Produced by: Sami Yusuf

from:  Salaam

Tonight the world will sleep
But hunger will not wait
For promises we made
We share one soul
We share one land
We have one time
To understand

We are one human kind
Brothers side by side
We'll have no regrets
We will not forget
We are one human kind
Sisters side by side
We'll have no regrets
We will not forget

Samihna ya allah
(Forgive us o Lord)
Wa irrhamna ya rabbah
(Have mercy on us o Lord)
Wa imnah rizqaka lil-afwah
(Give your bounty to the mouths)
Wa abi'd anha kul al-aah
(And keep away from them all the moans and groans)

Our words, our words must count
Hunger will not wait
For promises we made
We share one soul
We share one land
We have one time
To understand

We are one human kind
Brothers side by side
We'll have no regrets
We will not forget
We are one human kind
Sisters side by side
We'll have no regrets
We will not forget

Samihna ya allah
(Forgive us o Lord)
Wa irrhamna ya rabbah
(Have mercy on us o Lord)
Wa imnah rizqaka lil-afwah
(Give your bounty to the mouths)
Wa abi'd anha kul al-aah
(And keep away from them all the moans and groans)

Sisi binadamu
(We are humankind)
Wa roho moja sisi binadamu
(With the same spirit as one humankind)
Wa nchi moja sisi binadamu
(With the same land as one humankind)
Wa nisa moja kwaroho moja, nchi moja
(With one spirit as all, the same land)

Sisi binadamu
(We are humankind)
Wa roho moja sisi binadamu
(With the same spirit as one humankind)
Wa nchi moja sisi binadamu
(With the same land as one humankind)
Wa nisa moja kwaroho moja, nisa moja
(With one spirit as all, the same as all)

Our words must count
Hunger will not wait
For promises we made
