Arabic cover of Erik Satie : Gnossienne No. 1


In this video, Blind Sheikh Ehab Yonis is singing a religious Sufi chanting “يا مالكاً قدري /Oh, bearer of my truth” as an orchestra of “Cairo Steps” band played orientelized Gnosseinne piece in the background.

 

English Lyrics:

Oh, bearer of my truth,
Oh, bearer of my truth,
Oh, bearer of my truth, only you know what I amount to
I came to your door, incapable
With nothing to offer
Oh, my creator, my love for you, only you know it
Even when you’re majestically enshrouded: my love provides me sight, so I can still see you
So have mercy
Oh god
Have mercy for my longing heart, have mercy for my longing heart
Have mercy for my longing heart, have mercy for my longing heart
Oh how I long meeting you
