His wisdom flowed from Heaven’s Book
just like threaded pearls,
just like threaded pearls.

He left his self to flee to God
and God sent him back to us.

He was born to be the beloved
a will of the Divine
he was born to be the beloved
he was born to guide.

He prayed all his nights alone
in stars and Angels’ sight
and in the day he lit the way
with blazing words so bright.

He was born to be the beloved
a will of the Divine
He was born to be the beloved
he was born to be kind.

He taught the people to worship
bowing to one God,
bowing to one God.

His mercy stretched from East to West
to every man, woman and child.

He was born to be the beloved
a will of the Divine
He was born to be the beloved
nature, sublime.

He opened up the doors of love
for every heart parched with thirst
He was a mercy to the worlds
and unto the universe.

He was born to be the beloved
a will of the Divine
He was born to be the beloved
he was born to guide.
