Angel Band                                                                 Gane Walle Farishton

Written by: Jefferson Hascall

My latest sun is sinking fast                                      Mera suraj dhal raha hai,

My race is nearly run                                                 Meri daurh khatam hai.

My strongest trials now are passed                            Meri mushkil guzar gayee hai,

My triumph has begun                                               Meri jeet aa rahi hai.

Chorus

Oh, come, Angel band                                                Aa-o, gane walle farishton

Come and around me stand                                        aur mere aas paas raho

Oh bear me away on your snow white wings             Ley challo chandi ke paron par –

To my eternal home.                                                  mere abdi ghar.

Oh bear me away on your snow white wings             Ley challo chandi ke paron par –

To my eternal home.                                                  mere abdi ghar.

I’ve almost gained my Heavenly home                     Mujhe jennet me ghar mil gaya hai,

My spirit loudly sings                                                            Meri rooh ga rahi he.

The Holy ones, behold they come,                             Farishton ke paron ki,

I hear the noise of wings.                                           Awaz aa rahi hai.

Chorus

 

When the Saints Go Marching In                             Jaha Neyk Bande Ja Rahe Henh

We’re traveling in the footsteps                                Hum humsafar he unke

Of those who’ve gone before.                                    Jo ja chuke henh hum se pehle

And we’ll all be reunited                                           Hum un se ja milenge

On a new and sunlit shore                                          Ek nay roshan jahan me.

Oh, when the saints go marching in,                          Jaha neyk bande ja rahe henh,

Oh, when the saints go marching in,                          Jaha neyk bande ja rahe henh,

Lord, how I want to be in that number,                      Aaqa, mai bhii sath jaunga

Oh, when the saints go marching in.                          Jaha neyk bande ja rahe henh,

Oh, when the sun refuse to shine,                              Jub suraj khatam ho jaeyga

Oh, when the sun refuse to shine,                              Jub suraj khatam ho jaeyga

Lord, how I want to be in that number,                      Aaqa, mai bhii sath jaunga

Oh, when the sun refuse to shine.                              Jub suraj khatam ho jaeyga

Oh, when the trumpet sounds its call                         Jub soor pukha jaega

Oh, when the trumpet sounds its call                         Jub soor pukha jaega

Lord, how I want to be in that number                       Aaqa, mai bhii sath jaunga

Oh, when the trumpet sounds its call.                         Jub soor pukha jaega

 

Over in the Glory Land                                            Us Shandar Jahan me

I’ve a home prepared                                                  Hum ne he ghar banaya

Where the saints abide                                               Us me auliya aya

Over in the Glory Land                                              Us shandar jahan me

I long to be by my savior’s side                                 Khwahish he aaqa ke sath rahoon

Over in the Glory Land.                                             Us shandar jahan me.

Chorus

Over in the Glory Land.                                             Us shandar jahan me.

I’ll join thehappy angel’s band                                 Farishton ke sath shamil hoon

Over in the Glory Land.                                             Us shandar jahan me.

There with the mighty host I’ll stand                         Qadir ke sath me khara hunga

Over in the Glory Land.                                             Us shandar jahan me.

There to sing God’s praise and his glory share         Naat parhunga us ki shaan me

Over in the Glory Land.                                             Us shandar jahan me.

Chorus

What a joyful thought that my Lord I’ll see              Pakiza khayal ke- usko dekhunga

Over in the Glory Land.                                             Us shandar jahan me.

And kindred say there forever I’ll be                                     Ahbaab kehta je, ke sada rahunga.

Over in the Glory Land.                                             Us shandar jahan me.

Chorus

 

I’ll Fly Away                                                                          Me To Ur Jaunga

Some glad morning                                                                Us khushi ke din

When this life is over                                                             Jub sans khatam hoga

I’ll fly away                                                                            Me to ur jaunga

To a home on God’s celestial shore                                       Khoda ke qareeb hone ke liya

I’ll fly away.                                                                           Me to ur jaunga

CHORUS

I’ll fly away                                                                            Me to ur jaunga

I’ll fly away                                                                            Me to ur jaunga

When I die, Hallelujah, by and by                             Jub khatma hoga, ya maullah,

I’ll fly away                                                                            Me to ur jaunga

When the shadows of this life have gone                              Jub zindigi khatam hoga

I’ll fly away                                                                            Me to ur jaunga

Like a bird from these prison bars have flown                      Jaise chiriya ur jati henh

I’ll fly away                                                                            Me to ur jaunga

Chorus

 

Will the Circle be Unbroken                         Zindigi chalti rahegi

I was standing by my window                                    Eek sard aur abra lod shaam thii

One a cold and cloudy day.                                        Me khirki ke paas khara thaa.

When I saw the hearse come rolling                          Me ne dekha mayet ko aate

For to carry my mother away                                     Aur mere Ma ko sath le jaate

Chorus:

Will the circle be unbroken,                                      Zindigi chalti rahegi

By and by, Lord, by and by.                                       Ahista, ahista

There’s a better home awaiting                                 Behter re haish hoga

In the sky, Lord, in the sky.                                        Asmaan me asmaan me.

I said to the undertaker,                                              Mai ne mayet wallon se kaha

Undertaker, please drive slow.                                   Le challo ahista ahista

For the lady that you’re hauling,                               Jaani walli meri ma he

Lord, I hate to see her go.                                           Na kar mujhe juda

Chorus

I followed close behind her                                        (Me) chalta raha us se piche

Tried to hold up and be brave                                                Rok na saka us ko zara

But I could not hide my sorrow                                 Gum bhii chupa na saka

When they laid her in the grave.                                Jub usko qabr me uthara.

Chorus

We sang the songs of childhood                                Buchpun ke giit yaad aane lage

Hymns of faith that made us strong                           Imaan ka sabaq parhaya

Ones that mother taught us                                        Man ne sabaq mujhe sikhaya

Hear the angels sing along.                                        Sun farishton ne gaya.

Chorus

 

Swing Low Sweet Chariot                                        Savari Aa Rahi He

Savari, aa rahi he

Mujhe ghar le jane ke liye

Swing low, sweet chariot

Coming for to carry me home.

I looked over Jordan and what did I see?                   Me oordan ke paar kyaa dekha?

Comin’ for to carry me home,

A band of angels coming after me                             Farishton ka jaloos aa raha he

Comin’ for to carry me home.

If you get there before I do                                         Agr tum pehle pahunch jao

Comin’ for to carry me home.

Tell all my friends I am coming too.                         Doston se kehna main aa raha hoon

Comin’ for to carry me home.

Swing down, chariot, stop and let me ride                Savari, mujhe bhii chorna do roko!

Oh, swing down, chariot let me ride.                         Mujhe bhii chorna do!

Oh, rock me, Lord!  Lord!                                          E mere Aaqa! Ahiste se.

I got a home on the other side.                                   Mera ghar doosri taraf he.

Swing down chariot, won’t you let me ride?

Oh, swing down chariot, stop and let me ride.

Oh, rock me, Lord!  Rock me, Lord!

I got a home on the other side.

Two white horses standing side by side

Comin’ here take me for a ride

Rock me Lord, rock me Lord, slow and easy

I got a home on the other side.

 

Glory Glory Hallelujah                                 Jub me sub goonah dho dunga

Glory, Glory, Hallelujah                                Abdi fatah ya khoda!

When I lay my burden down                          Jub me sub goo-nah dho dunga

All my troubles will be over                          Tamaam fikreen door ho jayengi

When I lay my burden down.                         Jub me sub goo-na dho dunga

There’ll be no more pain or sorrow               Dard o gum se azaad hoong

When I lay my burden down.                         Jub me sub goo-na dho dunga
