danau ‘lut tawar’, takengon aceh tengah
ingin kuberjalan bersama iringi langkahmu
menggapai mimpi dan ketenangan hati,,
I sometimes lie awake at night And wonder at the stars so bright
I dream about my future too And the things that I will do
Soon the world will count on me I’m the future they agree
People depend on me somehow Though small and timid, I am now
So you and I my dearest friend Must stand together till the end
For we are one by Allah’s grace No matter what our colour or race
We must prepare ourselves today While we journey on our life’s way
So much there is to learn and see For true believers we must be
Yeah, yeah. Come on.
Go forward young Muslims, wherever you are
In the shadow of the sun or by the light of a star
Your Supreme protector is Almighty Allah
Go forward young Muslims wherever you are
Go forward young Muslims we feel your pain.
So many places, Palestine,
People are dying, mothers are crying
Bombs are falling from the sky, people asking why.
The only thing that we can do is pray to God, to help them through
But do they realize that Allah hates those who kill and despise.
I think that’s no surprise. We must rise up.
Come on young Muslims, gotta rise up.
Together we must stand in the Masjid to pray,
Pray for a better day, a better way
To make this world a better place.
Cause lets face it, it’s out of control.
We need to grab hold of each other, unite as one Ummah.
Like back in the days of the Companions of the Prophet,
Some were young, they were strong and they loved each other
Brothers and sisters and they could die for one another.
So stand up young Muslims.
Say it out loud, it’s time to be counted.
Right here, right now.
Yeah, right here. Come on, right now.
O Allah we love you so
Give us health and make us grow
Be with us each passing day
While we journey on life’s way
