1  Becalmed on waveless sea,
By red horizon crowned,
Nor herb, nor spreading tree,
Thro' all the desert's round.
Hark! the muezzin's call
To prayer at even fall:
God is great!
There is no god but God!
God is great!
Then over the pathless waste away
O'er billowy sand and dusky spray,
Away, away!

2  Afar our horsemen sweep,
'Mid gleam of lance and sword,
Our peaceful path to keep
From swoop of robber horde.
Hark! the muezzin's cry,
As dawn of day is nigh:
God is great!
There is no god but God!
God is great!
Then under the waning stars we ride,
To glistening fountain's mossy side,
We ride, we ride!
