List of Abdel Halim Hafez song lyrics
El Massih (Christ)
Ya kilmiti, lifi wa lifi al donia tolha wa aardaha.
Oh, my words... travel around the world from top to bottom.
Wa fatahi aioon el bashar, lilli hassal ala ardaha.
And open the eyes of it's people to what happened on it's land.
Alla ardaha, taba al Massih qadamo...
On it's land, Christ imprinted his footsteps.
Alla ardaha, nazaf el Massih alamo.
On it's land, Jesus felt his pain.
Fil Qods, wa fi el tariq el alam... wa fil Khalil, ranit tarateel el kanais.
In Jerusalem, in the trail of pain and in Hebron, the church bells rang.
Fi al khala, sabah el wigood ingeel.
From the wilderness, the gospel emerged.
Tifdaal tidee feek el hiqooq le emta, ya tariq el alam?
How long will justice be lost within you, oh trail of pain?
Wi yentifi al nor fil dameer wi tintifi nigoom el salam.
And how long will the lights of conscience and the stars of peace be extinguished?
Wel imta feek yimshi gareeh, wel imta feek yifdal yiseeh....
And how long will men walk through you, wounded? And how long will will they remain screaming?
Massih! Wara, Massih, wara, Massih... ala ardaha!
While Christ follows... Christ follows them on it's land!
Tag el shok foq gibeeno wi foq kitfo el salib.
The crown of thorns pierced his brow and the cross, he carried on his shoulders.
Dilwaqti, ya Qods, ibnik zay el Massih, gharib... gharib.
Right now, oh Jerusalem, your son is like Christ, a stranger... a stranger (In his own land).
Tag el shok foq gibeeno wa foq kitfo el salib.
The crown of thorns pierced his brow and the cross he carried on his shoulders.
Khanoo! Khanoo nafs el Yahood!
They betrayed him! These same Jews betrayed him!
Ibnik, ya Qods, zay el Massih lazim ya ood! Alla ardaha...
Your son, oh Jerusalem, just like Christ, must prevail! On it's land...
