All men in the whole wide world adore Him whom we adore
All men in the whole wide world adore Him whom we adore;
How could we deny entry, it's a road or open door?
Whatever, whomever we love, our Loved One also loves;
Can the friend of our Friend have something to doubt or abhor?
If you are a true lover, befriend the friend of the Friend;
You would be unfair to your Friend if you stay as you are.
If you truly love, sacrifice yourself to all nations
So that you may be seen as faithful by the lovers' corps.
If you are God's true lover, He will open doors for you;
Give up your pride and tear down your crass selfhood to the core.
Leader and led, meek and rebel, they are all slaves of God;
How can you say to a man: 'Leave your house, come out of there.'
The fact Yunus knows is a word from a hidden treasure:
The Friend's lovers pay no heed to this world or the other.
