Allah, What A Mighty Heart

In Karbala he sacrificed everything he had (x2)
Allah what a mighty heart your Husayn had (x3)

  1. Who would have thought one afternoon is all that it would take
    For Husayn to sacrifice, his house for Allah’s sake
    His body in a state that we can’t even comprehend
    Imam Sajjad watched helplessly, the women to defend
  2. Allah what a mighty heart your Husayn had (x3)

  3. He heard Abbas’ call and towards him he raced
    What could prepare him for the scene that he was going to face
    All that he could see was the dampness on the sand before
    His arms were lying helplessly, scattered upon the floor
  4. Allah what a mighty heart your Husayn had (x3)

  5. He came to speak to Abbas, motionless he lay
    How unbearable must it be, to see him in this way
    The only consolation was the imaan in his heart
    Knowing that his brother and master weren’t too far apart
  6. Allah what a mighty heart your Husayn had (x3)

  7. Now it was the turn of Akber, to go and boldly fight
    The spear hit his chest and the pain it did ignite
    His call was answered by Husayn who found him on the sand
    How hard it was to pull the spear out, with a father’s hands
  8. Allah what a mighty heart your Husayn had (x3)

  9. His family lay about the sand, for help he did call
    The only one to answer it was his infant so small
    He takes the baby in his arms, his lips are dry with thirst
    The mother watches from her tent, let Hurmala be cursed
  10. Allah what a mighty heart your Husayn had (x3)

  11. He's bringing back the baby – will his pain not decrease
    He lost this little soldier and his heart has lost its peace
    The sand rejects his blood and the sky it spurns it too
    What strength does it require to, see his mission through
  12. Allah what a mighty heart your Husayn had (x3)

  13. To bury his little son – his strength it must consume
    The time then came to bid farewell, to Zainab and Kulthoom
    Sakina lies on his chest and started to grieve
    Her request to the Imam was "Father please don’t leave"
  14. Allah what a mighty heart your Husayn had (x3)

  15. He took his daughter from his chest, it would not be long
    Before his turn to go and fight, she’d have to stay strong
    Oh daughter of Husayn you’ll face calamities severe
    Your veil will be taken, they’ll snatch the jewellery from your ears
  16. Allah what a mighty heart your Husayn had (x3)

  17. The time had come for him to go, he mounted his horse
    Knowing that the enemy would have no remorse
    But Zuljana refused to move, Oh enemies adhere
    Even a horse can recognise your crimes are so severe

Allah what a mighty heart your Husayn had (x3)
