"The World Struck Gold"m

(A poem dedicated to His Highness the Aga Khan

on the occasion of his Golden Jubilee celebration)



You're our father, you're our mother

A precious rock unlike any other

When Allah crowned you the world struck gold

And you keep giving back ten thousand fold

Bringing our children in from the cold

Giving the forgotten a hand to hold

A golden example for the young and the old

The light of Allah's in you for all to behold

A fifty year story so true that still unfolds

You're our pride, you're our prince

A shining jewel ever since

Allah crowned you and the world struck gold

And you keep giving back ten thousand fold

Improving the lives of all in your fold

Proving that right's better done than told

A guiding rainbow for every lost soul

The light of Allah's in you for all to behold

A fifty year story so true that still unfolds

You're our teacher, you're our treasure

A heart of gold beyond any measure

When Allah crowned you the world struck gold

And you keep giving back ten thousand fold

Unearthing kindness from the deepest hole

Producing diamonds from the darkest coal

A guardian angel with wings of gold

The light of Allah's in you for all to behold

A fifty year story so true that still unfolds

When Allah crowned you the world struck gold

When Allah found you the world struck gold

When Allah made you we all struck gold

When Allah made you he broke the mold
