Interpretation in English :


My mind and body are filled with love for my Inaccessible Lord and Master.
Each and every instant, I am filled with immense faith and devotion.
Gazing upon the Guru, my mind’s faith is fulfilled, like the song-bird, which cries and cries, until the rain-drop falls into its mouth.
|| 1 ||
Join with me, join with me, O my companions, and teach me the Sermon of the Lord.
The True Guru has mercifully united me with God.
Cutting off my head, and chopping it into pieces, I offer it to Him.
|| 1 ||
Pause || Each and every hair on my head, and my mind and body, suffer the pains of separation;
without seeing my God, I cannot sleep.
The doctors and healers look at me, and are perplexed.
Within my heart, mind and body, I feel the pain of divine love.
|| 2 ||
I cannot live for a moment, for even an instant, without my Beloved, like the opium addict who cannot live without opium.
Those who thirst for God, do not love any other.
Without the Lord, there is no other at all.
|| 3 ||
If only someone would come and unite me with God;
I am devoted, dedicated, a sacrifice to him.
After being separated from the Lord for countless incarnations, I am re-united with Him, entering the Sanctuary of the True, True, True Guru.
|| 4 ||
There is one bed for the soul-bride, and the same bed for God, her Lord and Master.
The self-willed manmukh does not obtain the Mansion of the Lord’s Presence;
she wanders around, in limbo.
Uttering, “Guru, Guru”, she seeks His Sanctuary;
so God comes to meet her, without a moment’s delay.
|| 5 ||
One may perform many rituals, but the mind is filled with hypocrisy, evil deeds and greed.
When a son is born in the house of a prostitute, who can tell the name of his father?
|| 6 ||
Because of devotional worship in my past incarnations, I have been born into this life.
The Guru has inspired me to worship the Lord, Har, Har, Har, Har.
Worshipping, worshipping Him with devotion, I found the Lord, and then I merged into the Name of the Lord, Har, Har, Har, Har.
|| 7 ||
God Himself came and ground the henna leaves into powder, and applied it to my body.
Our Lord and Master showers His Mercy upon us, and grasps hold of our arms;
O Nanak, He lifts us up and saves us.
|| 8 || 6 || 9 || 2 || 1 || 6 || 9 ||
