Hum Dekhenge.....

We Shall See...

We shall see
Certainly we, too, shall see
that day that has been promised to us


When these high mountains
Of tyranny and oppression
turn to fluff and evaporate


And we oppressed
Beneath our feet will have
this earth shiver, shake and beat
And heads of rulers will be struck
With crackling lightening
and thunder roars.


When from this God's earth's (Kaa'ba)
All falseness (icons) will be removed
Then we of clean hearts
condemned by Zealots
those keepers of Faith,
We, will be invited to that altar to sit and Govern
When crowns will be thrown off
and over turned will be thrones


We shall see
Certainly we, too, shall see
that day that has been promised to us


The God's name will remain (Allah will remain)
Who is invisible and visible too
Who is the seer and is seen
There will rise one cheer- I am God!
Who I am too
and so are you


Then the masses, people of God will rule
Who I am too
and so are you


There will rise one cheer- I am God!
Who I am too
and so are you
