Hajj


Hajj journey to the heaven

Oh god on my journey
To Hajj
Humble and with long
On my path
To your older House
The oldest of all houses
Loaded with my sins
And doubts
My hope is only
Your mercy
My lord
Show me the road
Where right
And where wrongs
On the path to your heaven

A little while a little love
The hour yet bears for thee and me
Who have not drawn the veil to see
If still our heaven be lit above.
Thou merely, at the day's last sigh,
