Naam japath dukh jaae Har kaa

Har kaa naam japath dukh jaae
chanting the name of the Lord, sorrow is dispelled.

Nanak bolai sehaj subhaae
O Nanak, chant it with intuitive ease.

Bahuth siaanp jam kaa bho biaapai
Even with great cleverness, the fear of deatg clings to you.

Anik jathan kar thrisan naa dhraapai
You try all sorts of things, but your thirst is still not satisfied.

Bhaekh anaek agan nahee bujhai
Wearing various religious robes, the fire is not extinguished.

Kott oupaav dharageh nehee sijhai
Even making millions of efforts, you shall not be accepted in the court of the Lord.

Shottas naahee oobh paeiaal
You cannot escape to the heavens, or to the nether regions,

Mohi biaapehi maaeia jaal
If you are entangled in emotional attachment and the need of Maya.

Avar karathooth sagalee jan ddaanai
All other efforts are punished by the Messenger of Death,

Govind bhajan bin thil nehee maanai
Which accepts nothing to all, except meditation on the Lord of the Universe.

Deh Shiva bar mohe ihai

Deh Shiva bar mohe ihai  
Grant me this boon O God

shubh karman the kabhu na taroo  
May I never refrain from the righteous acts;

Na daroo ar siyoo jab jah laroon 
May I fight without fear all foes in life's battles

Nischai kar apni jeet koroo 
With confident courage claiming the victory! 

Ar Sikh hao apne hi mum ko 
May thy glory be grained in my mind,

Eh lalch hou guna tau uchroo 
and my highest ambition be singing thy praises; 

Jab aav ki audh nidhann nanay 
When this mortal life comes to end, 

Aut he rann me tab joojh maroo 
May I die fighting with limitless courage
