Be Merciful, O my Beloved Lord and Master! that I may behold the Blessed Vision of Your Darshan with my eyes.
Please bless me, O my Beloved! with thousands of tongues, to worship and adore You with my mouth, O Lord!
Worshipping the Lord in adoration, the Path of Death is overcome, and no pain or suffering will afflict you.
The Lord and Master is pervading and permeating the water, the land and the sky; wherever I look, there He is.
Doubt, attachment and corruption are gone.
God is the nearest of the near.
Please bless Nanak with Your Merciful Grace, O God! that his eyes may behold the Blessed Vision of Your Darshan. || 1 ||
Please bless me, O Beloved God! with millions of ears, with which I may hear the Glorious Praises of the Imperishable Lord.
Listening, listening to these, this mind becomes spotless and pure, and the noose of Death is cut.
The noose of Death of Consciousmness is cut, meditating on the Imperishable Lord, and all happiness and wisdom are obtained.
Chant, and meditate, day and night, on the Lord, Har, Har.
Focus your meditation on the Celestial Lord.
The painful residues of sinful mistakes are burnt away, by keeping God in one’s thoughts; evil-mindedness is erased.
Says Nanak, O God! please be Merciful to me, that I may listen to Your Glorious Praises, O Imperishable Lord! || 2 ||
Please give me millions of hands to serve You, O God! and let my feet walk on Your Path.
Service to the Lord is the boat to carry us across the terrifying world-ocean.
So cross over the terrifying world-ocean, meditating in remembrance on the Lord, Har, Har; all wishes shall be fulfilled.
Even the worst corruption is taken away; peace wells up, and the unstruck celestial harmony vibrates and resounds.
All the fruits of the mind’s desires are obtained; His creative power is infinitely valuable.
Says Nanak, please be Merciful to me, O God! that my mind may follow Your Path forever. || 3 ||
