Interpretation in English :
SORATíH, FIFTH MEHL
The Restorer of what was taken away, the Liberator from captivity;
the Formless Lord, the Destroyer of pain.
I do not know about karma and good deeds;
I do not know about Dharma and righteous living.
I am so greedy, chasing after Maya.
I go by the name of Godís devotee;
please, save this honor of Yours.
|| 1 ||
O Dear Lord, You are the honor of the dishonored.
You make the unworthy ones worthy, O my Lord of the Universe;
I am a sacrifice to Your almighty creative power.
|| Pause ||
Like the child, innocently making thousands of mistakes ó his father teaches him, and scolds him so many times, but still, he hugs him close in his embrace.
Please forgive my past actions, God, and place me on Your path for the future.
|| 2 ||
The Lord, the Inner-knower, the Searcher of hearts, knows all about my state of mind;
so who else should I go to and speak to?
The Lord, the Lord of the Universe, is not pleased by mere recitation of words;
if it is pleasing to His Will, He preserves our honor.
I have seen all other shelters, but Yours alone remains for me.
|| 3 ||
Becoming kind and compassionate, God the Lord and Master Himself listens to my prayer.
He unites me in Union with the Perfect True Guru, and all the cares and anxieties of my mind are dispelled.
The Lord, Har, Har, has placed the medicine of the Naam into my mouth;
servant Nanak abides in peace.
