Yusuf Islam – The Beloved lyrics

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
And stars and angels sighed
And in the day he lead 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 words
And unto the human births

He was born to be the beloved
A will of the Divine
He was born to be the beloved,
He was born to guide
