Lyrics

There was so much on my mind
In my bed I lay
I turned to my side
And I heard a voice say
Stop all your whining
Heart-rates declining
You’ve got so much more than most
Look how you’re sleeping
How much you’ve eaten
Don’t you know that you’re supposed to say

Sabr (patience) and Shukr (gratitude) are wonderful things
The praises to Allah
We should always sing
When things go right
It’s from Him not me
And when they are wrong
We get through patiently

I got out of bed
Began to walk
Bumped into some folks
And we started to talk
Did you hear about the killing?
The bloodshed, the stealing?
The grass got burnt on the other side
Soldiers are coming
People are running
All that’s left is the orphan child

Sabr and Shukr are wonderful things
The praises to Allah
We should always sing
When things go right
It’s from Him not me
And when they are wrong
We get through patiently

I open my eyes
And begin to see
Everything that’s happening around me
What seemed half-empty
Now seems so full
There’s no use crying over what’s been spilled
While babies are dying
Mothers are crying
Their containers have never ever been filled

I open my eyes
Begin to see
Everything that's happening around me

Sabr and Shukr are wonderful things
The praises to Allah we should always sing

(Repeat)

Sabr and Shukr are wonderful things
The praises to Allah
We should always sing
When things go right
It’s from Him not me,
And when they are wrong
We get through patiently
