Hasbi Rabbi

Songfacts®:

  • Cliff Richard had the temerity to record The Lord's Prayer to the tune of "Auld Lang Syne", and the British public were dumb enough to send it to the top of the charts. "Hasbi Rabbi" is Sami Yusuf's original composition, and, unlike "Millennium Prayer", a genuine prayer. Although he regards himself as British, Yusuf was born in Tehran and has a deep understanding of Arabic music, the employment of which in this song makes him more enticing listening than Cliff Richard. >>
