Verse 2 (English):
We all walk at times, down a lonely path
Weight of worry weighing our shoulders down
Like passing clouds on a starless night
Only behold the truth come the morning light
And we see within ourselves our silver lining
And we rise up above our petty dividing
And there’ll be no end in sight
When we praise, praise, praise Allah
through the night…

When you lonely…praise
Praise Him everyday

Say Allahu Akbar…Allahu Akbar
God is Great!
Say Allahu Akbar…Allahu Akbar
God is Great!
