Lab pe ati hai Dua banke tamanna me
My heart's desire comes to my lips as a prayer
Children's Song

Children's Song
(English)

Lab pe ati hai Dua banke tamanna me.
Zindagi Shamma ki surat ho khudaya meri.

Door duniya ka mere dam se andhera ho jaye.
har jagah mer chamakne se ujala ho jaye.

ho yon hi mere dam se mere watan ki zeenat
jis tarah phool se hoti hai chaman ki zeenat.

mera kam ghareebo ki Himayat karna.
dardmando wa zaeefo se Muhabbat karna.

mere allah burayi se bachana mujhko.
nek jo rah hai us rah pe chalana mujhko.

My heart's desire comes to my lips as a prayer
God, make my life as one of a candle, a guiding light

My presence would destroy the darkness of this world,
And my burning light would illuminate all space

My actions would be for my country, beautiful and admired
Just as a flower adds to the beauty of a garden

My work would be to help the poor
And to fill the lives of the lost and old with love

O God, save me from the evil and wrong
And keep me on the path that is straight and righteous.

Notes

This is sung in Muslim schools in Pakistan. It was written by Dr. Iqbal.
