One God is our father;

We are the children of One God.

You are our Guru, the Teacher.

My soul is a sacrifice to You, O Lord!

Friends, listen:

Reveal to me your blessed vision of Darshan (Holy Sight)!

I am a sacrifice to the dust of your feet,

This mind is yours.

I wash your feet,

I massage and clean them;

I give this mind to you.

I have come to your Sanctuary

Teach me, that I might unite with God.

Do not be proud; seek His Sanctuary,

And accept as good all that He does.

Listen, friends:

Dedicate your soul, body and your whole being to Him;

Thus you shall receive the Blessed Vision of His Darshan.

By the Grace of Saints, He has shown mercy to me;

The Lordís Name is sweet to me.

The Guru has shown mercy to the servant Nanak,

Who sees the casteless, immaculate Lord everywhere. |
