Gham-E-Zamana Nahin Ek Azab Hai Saqi

gham-e-zamana nahin ik azaab hai saaqi

sharab la miri halat ḳharab hai saaqi

shabab ke liye tauba azaab hai saaqi

sharab la mujhe pas-e-shabab hai saaqi

utha piyala ki gulshan pe phir barasne lagi

vo mai ki jis ka qadah mahtab hai saaqi

nikal parda-e-mina se duḳhtar-e-raz ko

ghata men kis liye ye mahtab hai saaqi

tu vaizon ki na sun mai-kashon ki ḳhidmat kar

gunah savab ki ḳhatir savab hai saaqi

zamane-bhar ke ghamon ko hai davat-e-gharra

ki ek jaam men sab ka javab hai saaqi

kalam jis ka hai mearaj ‘hafiz’-o-‘ḳhayyam’

yahi vo ‘aḳhtar’-e-ḳhana-ḳharab hai saaqi
