    Aasaa, Fifth Mehl:

    That wretched creature, whom no one knows,

    Chanting the Naam, the Name of the Lord, he is honored in the four directions.
    I beg for the Blessed Vision of Your Darshan; please, give it to me,

    O Beloved! Serving You, who, who has not been saved? (1) Pause.
    That person, whom no one wants to be near -
    The whole world comes to wash the dirt of his feet. (2)

    That mortal, who is of no use to anyone at all -
    By the Grace of the Saints, he meditates on the Naam. (3)
    In the Saadh Sangat, the Company of the Holy, the sleeping mind awakens.

    Then, O Nanak, God seems sweet. (4)
