Drink with the Beloved

The lyrics to the Sufi song “Drink with the Beloved”. I first heard this while dancing at the grave of Murshid Samuel L. Lewis, so I feel very blessed to have heard such a fantastic song at such a great place.

Drink the wine down, tip the glass
Drink with the Beloved
Take this breath like its your last
Drink with the Beloved
We’re a caravan you see
Moving towards our destiny
You must find the eyes to see
Drink with the Beloved

La illaha illallah
La illaha illallah
La illaha illallah
La illaha illallah

Go to the East, go to the West
Drink with the Beloved
You can’t escape this birth and death
Drink with the Beloved
Drink the cup of loving down
This is truly drink and drown
What is lost, it shall be found
Drink with the Beloved

La illaha illallah
La illaha illallah
La illaha illallah
La illaha illallah

So listen to the inner call
Drink with the Beloved
The tavern masters rise and fall
Drink with the Beloved
Watch the drunkards reel and spin
Feel the presence from within
Toasting to the dearest friends
Drink with the Beloved

La illaha illallah
La illaha illallah
La illaha illallah
La illaha illallah

We’re a caravan you see
Moving towards our destiny
You must find the eyes to see
Drink with the Beloved
