Follow along ...
Safa Vere Aya Kar

The God that you find while
searching in the jungle ...
Is found by fowl and fish and beast

Bulleh Shah, only they find the True God
Who are good and pure at heart!

You have learnt so much by reading a thousand books ...
Have you ever read what's inside you?
You go sit in a Mosque and Temple.

You go sit in a Mosque and Temple
Have you ever visited your own soul?

You are so busy fighting Satan
Have you ever fought your own evil intentions?

You have reached the sky
But have failed to reach what's in your heart!

Come to my abode, My Friend
Morning, noon, and night!

Destroy the Mosque ...
Destroy the Temple ...
Do as you please ...

Do not break the human heart.
For God dwell's therein!

I search for you in the jungle and wilderness
I have searched for and wide ...

Do not torment me my love,
Morning, noon, and night!

Come to my abode, My Love
Morning, noon, and night!

Come to my abode,
My Guide, My Friend
Morning, noon, and night!
