Interpretation in English :
SORATíH, FOURTH MEHL
God Himself is the balance scale, He Himself is the weigher, and He Himself weighs with the weights.
He Himself is the banker, He Himself is the trader, and He Himself makes the trades.
The Beloved Himself fashioned the world, and He Himself counter-balances it with a gram.
|| 1 ||
My mind meditates on the Lord, Har, Har, and finds peace.
The Name of the Beloved Lord, Har, Har, is a treasure;
the Perfect Guru has made it seem sweet to me.
|| Pause ||
The Beloved Himself is the earth, and He Himself is the water;
He Himself acts, and causes others to act.
The Beloved Himself issues His Commands, and keeps the water and the land bound down.
The Beloved Himself instills the Fear of God;
He binds the tiger and the goat together.
|| 2 ||
The Beloved Lord Himself is the firewood, and He Himself keeps the fire within the wood.
The Beloved Lord Himself, all by Himself, permeates them, and because of the Fear of God, the fire cannot burn the wood.
The Beloved Himself kills and revives;
all draw the breath of life, given by Him.
|| 3 ||
The Beloved Himself is power and presence;
He Himself engages us in our work.
As the Beloved makes me walk, I walk, as it pleases my Lord God.
The Beloved Himself is the musician, and the musical instrument;
servant Nanak vibrates His vibration.
