A morte é um grande sofrimento
A morte chegou a levar-me o meu pai
Tanto me doi ter perdido o meu pai
Se a morte levou o Profeta
Vai-nos levar a todos
O meu pai desapareceu
Vamos todos rezar pelo meu pai
para que Deus lhe dê um bom lugar no outro mundo
Glória
A morte é um grande sofrimento
A morte chegou a levar-me o meu pai
Eu como filho sofro muito, com a morte de meu pai
Nós irmãos todos sofremos com a morte de meu pai
Vamos todos rezar pelo meu pai


Death is a great suffering
Death came to take my father
It hurts me a lot to have lost my father
If death took the Prophet
It will take us all
My father disappeared
Let us all pray for my father
so that God will give him a good place in the other world
Glory
Death is a great suffering
Death came to take my father
I suffer a lot as a son with the death of my father
We brothers all suffer with the death of my father
Let us all pray for my father
