Forgotten Promises V4 – JCD Cover

JCD July 4 2015

JCD Cover – Forgotten Promises (Sami Yusuf original)

Dedicated to my dear friend in Abu Dhabi – for the kindest of support and friendship – bless you.

No rights reserved – this is not a monetised song.

Simply my humble attempt at a beautiful cover song.

Listen with headphones.

I hope you enjoy this – I simply adore this artist – Sami Yusuf – he writes and performs such powerful, heartfelt pieces. I can claim nothing other than the voice here, in the hope that I have done this rich, magnificient song, justice.

I have included Sami’s original youtube version as well, for your interest.

“Forgotten Promises”  
Writer(s): Sami Yusuf, Will Knox © 2012

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]
Samihna ya allah
Wa irrhamna ya rabbah
 Wa imnah rizqaka lil-afwah
 Wa abi’d anha kul al-aah

 ENGLISH   
Forgive us o lord
Have mercy on us o lord
Give your bounty to the mouths
And keep away
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

ENGLISH            
Forgive us o lord
Have mercy on us o lord
Give your bounty to the mouths
And keep away
the moans and groans

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