Without the Lord, my mind cannot survive.
If the Guru unites me with my Beloved Lord God, my breath of life, then I shall not have to face the wheel of reincarnation again in the terrifying world-ocean.

Pause || My heart is gripped by a yearning for my Lord God, and with my eyes, I behold my Lord God.
The merciful True Guru has implanted the Name of the Lord within me;
this is the Path leading to my Lord God.

Through the Lord’s Love, I have found the Naam, the Name of my Lord God, the Lord of the Universe, the Lord my God.
The Lord seems so very sweet to my heart, mind and body;
upon my face, upon my forehead, my good destiny is inscribed.
|| 2 ||
Those whose minds are attached to greed and corruption forget the Lord, the good Lord God.
Those self-willed manmukhs are called foolish and ignorant;
misfortune and bad destiny are written on their foreheads.
|| 3 ||
From the True Guru, I have obtained a discriminating intellect;
the Guru has revealed the spiritual wisdom of God.
Servant Nanak has obtained the Naam from the Guru;
such is the destiny inscribed upon his forehead.
