Guru Arjan Dev Ji – Raag Asa – Siri Guru Granth Sahib Ji – Ang 386
Jis neech kao ko-ee na jaanai
Naam japat uho chaho kunt maanai
Darshan maagao day-eh pi-aaray
Tumaree sayvaa kaun kaun na taaray
Jaa kai nikat na aavai ko-ee
Sagal srisat u-aa kay charan mal dho-ee
Jo praanee kaahoo na aavat kaam
Sant prasaad taa ko japee-ai naam
Saadh sang man sovat jaagay
Tab prabh Naanak meethay laagay
The wretched one, whom no one knows,
By chanting the Name of the Lord, he is honored in all four directions.
I humbly ask, O Beloved Lord, for the Blessed Vision of You.
Serving You, who has not been saved?
That one who is avoided by everyone,
The whole world will come to wash the dirt of his feet.
That person who is of no avail to anyone at all –
By the Grace of the Saint, he comes to chant the Name.
In the company of the Holy, the sleeping soul awakens.
Then, O Nanak, the Lord seems sweet.
