"Wahed" by Proskuneo Ministries

I once had the privilege of transcribing an album by Proskuneo Ministries in Atlanta. The song on the album where the Arabic language is the most prominent is "Wahed." Translated as "One," the song is in a total of four different Asian languages (Arabic, Burmese, Korean, and Tedim) as well as English. It's a catchy melody on the harmonic minor scale. You can access the chord chart and lead sheets at the bottom of this page. Arabic phonetics and English translation below:


Arabic:

Alrrouh wahed, Alrrab wahed, Allah wahed, Al kul fil kul

Alrrouh wahed, Alrrab wahed, Allah wahed, Al kul fil kul


Alrab Saleh, Alrab Saleh, Alrab Saleh, Lil-kuli

Alrab Saleh, Alrab Saleh, Alrab Saleh, Lil-kuli

Alrab Saleh, Alrab Saleh, Alrab Saleh, Lil-kuli


English translation:

One soul, one Lord, one God, one all in all

One soul, one Lord, one God, one all in all


The Lord is good, the Lord is good, the Lord is good for all

The Lord is good, the Lord is good, the Lord is good for all

The Lord is good, the Lord is good, the Lord is good for all
