Din dhallaa raat phir aa gayi so raho so raho,

Din dhallaa raat phir aa gayi so raho so raho,
Manzilo cchhaa gayi khamoshi so raho so raho,

Saara din tapte suuraj ki garmi main jalte jalte,
Thandi thandi havaa phir chali so raho so raho,

Garm sunsaan qariyon ki dharti mehekne lagi,
Khaak rashk-e-iram ban gayi so raho so raho,

Razm-gaah-e-jahan ban gayi jaa-e-aman-o-amaan,
Hai yehi waqt ki raagni so raho so raho,

Kaise sunsaan hain aasmaan chup kharre hain makaan,
Hai fazaa ajnabi ajnabi so raho so raho,

Thak gaye naaqa-o-saar-ban thamm gaye kaarvaan,
Ghhanttiyon ki sadaa so gayi so raho so raho,

Gardish-e-waqt ki loriyaan raat ki raat hain,
Phir kahaan yeh havaa yeh nami so raho so raho,

Saari basti ke log iss madhur lai main khho gaye,
Duur bajne lagi bansuri so raho so raho,

Duur shaakhon ki jhurmatt main jugnuu bhi gum ho gaye,
Chaand main so gayi chaandni so raho so raho,

Ghar ke deevaar-o-dar raah tak tak ke shall ho gaye,
Ab na aaye ga shayed koi so raho so raho,

Sust raftaar taare bhi aankhen jhapakne lage,
Gham ke maaro gharri do gharri so raho so raho,

Muun-andhere hi Nasir kise dhuundne chal diye,
Duur hai subh-e-roshan abhi so raho so raho..
