In the name of God, the most Gracious, the most Merciful.
By the glorious morning light and by the night when it is still,
Your guardian Lord has not forsaken you, nor is he displeased.
And verily the hereafter is better for you than the present.
And soon will your guardian Lord give you that,
Where with you will be well pleased.
Did he not find you an orphan and give you shelter?
And he found you wandering and he gave you guidance?
And he found you in need and he made you independent?
Therefore treat not the orphans with harshness,
Nor repulse the petitioner,
In the bounty of your Lord, proclaim!
There is work I must now begin.
All my dreams have blown away,
And the children wait to play.
They’ll soon remember,
Things to do when the heart is young,
And the night is done,
And the sky is blue.
Morning songbird sing away,
Learn the tune to another day.
Bring your wings and choose a groove,
Sing a song of love and truth.
We’ll soon remember if you do,
When all things were tall,
And our friends were small,
And the world was new.
Sleepy horses heave away,
Put your backs to a golden hay.
Don’t ever look behind at the work you’ve done,
For your work has just begun.
They’ll be the evening in the end,
But till that time arrives ,
You can rest your eyes and begin again.
