Erler Demine

Erler demine destur alalım
Pervaneye bak ibret alalım
Aşkın ateşine gel bir yanalım
Pervaneye bak ibret alalım

Devrana girüp seyran edelim
Eyvah demeden Allah diyelim
Lâ ilâhe illallâh, lâ ilâhe illallâh
Lâ ilâhe illallâh, Hu

Ey yolcu biraz gel dinle beni
Kervan geçiyor sen kalma geri
Yusuf denilen dünya güzeli
Fethetti bugün kalb-i seferi

Günler geceler durmaz geçiyor
Sermayen olan ömrün bitiyor
Bülbüllere bak efgan ediyor
Ey gonca açıl mevsim geçiyor

The Cirle of Saints

We seek permission to enter the circle of saints
Let us take lesson from the moth
Let us burn in the fire of Love
Taking the moth as a lesson

We seek to observe in the circle of dhikrullah
Let us say Allah before alas
Lâ ilâhe illallâh, lâ ilâhe illallâh
lâ ilâhe illallâh, Hu

Oh wayfarer listen to me
Caravans are departing, don’t be left behind
Yusuf, known as “The Beauty of the World”           
Achieved the heart’s expedition               

Days and nights pass by, they won’t stop
Your life, which is your capital, is diminishing
Look at the nightingales, they are calling
“Oh Rosebud, Open! the season is passing.”
