I pray the prayer the Easterns do,
May the Peace of Allah abide with you.
Wherever you stay, wherever you go,
May the beautiful palms of Allah grow.
Through the days of labor and the -- nights of rest,
May the Love of Allah make you blest.
So I touch my heart as the Easterns do,
May the peace of Allah abide with you.
