A flower of Almighty Allah's design;
But I cannot unfold the petals
With these clumsy hands of mine.
The secret of unfolding flowers
Is not known to such as I.
Almighty Allah opens this flower so sweetly,
Then in my hands they die.
If I cannot unfold a rosebud,
This flower of Almighty Allah's design,
Then how can I have the wisdom
To unfold this life of mine?
So I'll trust in Allah for leading
each moment of my day.
I will look to Almighty Allah for His guidance
each step of the way.
The pathway that lies before me,
Only Almighty Allah knows.
I'll trust Him to unfold the moments,
Just as He unfolds the rose.
