Lyrics:
Oh Hummingbird, mankind was
 waiting for you to come
 flying along
Heavenly Songbird we were so
 wrong, we've harmed you
Oh Hummingbird, lend us your
 wings
Let us soar in the atmosphere of
 Abha
"Lift us up to the Heaven of
 Holiness
Oh Source of our being!"* --Oh,
 Hummingbird

Hummingbird don't fly away,
 fly away
Hummingbird don't fly away,
 fly away
In you I found a fragrance
I'll love you till I die
I just love you, love you, love you
I don't even know the reason why.

Hummingbird don't fly away,
 fly away
Hummingbird don't fly away,
 fly away
The sweetness of your "Nectar"
Has drawn me like a fly
I just love you, love you, love you
I don't even know the reason why
 now

Hummingbird don't fly away,
 fly away
Hummingbird don't fly away,
 fly away

Haven't you noticed the days
 somehow keep getting longer
And the spirit-voices whisper in
 us all
Haven't you noticed the rays
The "Spirit Sun" is stronger
And a "New Day" is dawning for
 us all.

Hummingbird don't fly away,
 fly away
Hummingbird don't fly away,
 fly away
Alas here comes the "Gardener"
He's come to till the flowers
The draught of understanding,
 wisdom, peace and love is ours.

Hummingbird don't fly away,
 fly away
Hummingbird don't fly away,
 fly away
Don't fly away, don't fly away...

*From the Baha'i Scriptures
