LYRICS

Tonight the world will sleep
But hunger will not wait
For promises we made
We share one soul
We share one land
We have one time to understand

We are one humankind
Brothers side by side
We’ll have no regret
We will not forget
We are one humankind
Sisters side by side
We’ll have no regret
We will not forget

(Arabic)
سامحنا يا الله
(Samihna ya allah)
Forgive us o lord

وارحمنا يا رباه
(Wa irrhamna ya rabbah)
Have mercy on us o lord

وامنح رزقك للأفواه
(Wa imnah rizqaka lil-afwah)
Give your bounty to the mouths

وابعد عنها كل الــ آه
(Wa abi’d anha kul al-aah)
And keep away from them all the moans and groans

Our words must count
Hunger will not wait
For promises we made
We share one soul
We share one land
We have one time to understand

We are one humankind
Brothers side by side
We’ll have no regret
We will not forget
We are one humankind
Sisters side by side
We’ll have no regret
We will not forget

(Arabic)
سامحنا يا الله
(Samihna ya allah)
Forgive us o lord

وارحمنا يا رباه
(Wa irrhamna ya rabbah)
Have mercy on us o lord

وامنح رزقك للأفواه
(Wa imnah rizqaka lil-afwah)
Give your bounty to the mouths

وابعد عنها كل الــ آه
(Wa abi’d anha kul al-aah)
And keep away from them all the moans and groans

(Swalihi)
Sisi binadamu
We are humankind

Wa roho moja sisi binadamu
With the same spirit as one humankind

Wa nchi moja sisi binadamu
With the same land as one humankind

Wa nisa moja kwaroho moja, nchi moja
With one spirit as all, the same land

Sisi binadamu
We are humankind

Wa roho moja sisi binadamu
With the same spirit as one humankind

Wa nchi moja sisi binadamu
With the same land as one humankind

Wa nisa moja kwaroho moja, nisa moja
With one spirit as all, the same as all

Our words must count
Hunger will not wait
For promises we made
