1 koee ummeed bar naheen aate

1. koee ummeed bar naheen aatee

No hope comes my way

koee soorat nazar naheen aatee

No visage shows itself to me

2. maut ka ek din mu’ayyan hai

That death will come one day is definite

neehd kyon raat bhar naheeh aatee?

Then why does sleep evade me all night?

3. aage aatee thee haal-e-dil pe hansee

I used to laugh at the state of my heart

ab kisee baat par naheen aatee

Now no one thing brings a smile

4. jaanta hoon sawaab-e-taa’at-o-zahad

Though I know the reward of religious devotion
