nagrī nagrī phirā musāfir ghar rastā bhuul gayā

kyā hai terā kyā hai merā apnā parāyā bhuul gayā

nagri nagri phira musafir ghar ka rasta bhul gaya

kya hai tera kya hai mera apna paraya bhul gaya

ġham ke bharose kyā kuchh chhoḌā kyā ab tum se bayān kareñ

ġham bhī raas aayā dil ko aur kuchh sāmān kareñ

gham ke bharose kya kuchh chhoDa kya ab tum se bayan karen

gham bhi ras aaya dil ko aur hi kuchh saman karen

'mīr' mile the 'mīrā-jī' se bātoñ se ham jaan ga.e

faiz chashma jaarī hai hifz un bhī dīvān kareñ

'mir' mile the 'mira-ji' se baaton se hum jaan gae

faiz ka chashma jari hai hifz un ka bhi diwan karen
