Kahaa bhayo jo do-oo lochan moond kai
Baith rahee-o bak dhiaan lagaaee-o
Nhaat firee-o lee-ay saat samundran
lok gayo parlok gavaaee-o
Baas kee-o bikheeaan so baith kai
Aisay hee ais su bais bitaaee-o
Saach kaho sun layho sabhai
Jin praym kee-o tin hee prabh paaee-o
What is the use of sitting with one's eyes closed
Like a crane, pretending to meditate?
One may bathe in the seven seas,
But he will lose this world,
and lose the world beyond as well.
They who spend their lives indulging in corruption and sin,
Pass their lives in vain.
I speak the truth. Listen, everyone!
Those who love God, shall attain him.
