Bahutaa Karam - Transliteration
Bahutaa karam likhi-aa naa jaa-i
Vadaa daataa til na taamaa-i
Katay mangeh jodh apaar
Kayti-aa ganat nahee veechaar
Kaytay khap tuteh vaykaar
Kaytay lai lai mukar paa-eh
Kaytay moorakh khaahee khaa-eh
Kayti-aa dookh bhookh sad maar
Ayeh bhi daat tayree daataar
Band khalaasee bhaanai ho-i
Hor aakh na sakai ko-i
Jay ko khaa-ik aakhan paa-i
Oho jaanai jaytee-aa mu-eh khaa-i
Aapay jaanai aapay day-i
Aakeheh si bhi kayee kay-i
Jis no bakhsay sifat saalaah
Naanak paati-shaahee paati-shaaho

Bahutaa Karam - Translation
His Blessings are so abundant,
there can be no written account of them.
The Great Giver does not hold back anything.
So many great, heroic warriors beg
at the door of the Infinite Lord.
So many contemplate and dwell upon Him,
that they cannot be counted.
So many waste away to death engaged in corruption.
So many take and take again, and then deny receiving.
So many foolish consumers keep on consuming.
So many endure distress, deprivation, and constant abuse.
Even these are Your Gifts, O Great Giver!
Liberation from bondage comes only by your will.
No one else has any say in this.
If some fool should presume to say that he does, he shall learn, and feel the effects of his folly.
He Himself knows, He Himself gives.
Few, very few are those who acknowledge this.
One who is blessed to sing the Praises of the Lord,
O Nanak, is the king of kings.
