Swaiyaa II

Dayh shivaa bar mo-eh ihai

Subh karaman tay kabahoo(n) na taro(n)

Na daro(n) ar so jab jaa-i laro(n)

Nisachai kar aapanee jeet karo(n)

Ar sikh haao aapanay hee man kaao

Ih laalaach hao gun tao ucharo(n)

Jab aav kee audh nidhaan banai

At hee ran mai tab joojh maro(n)


Grant me, O God, this blessing:

May I never refrain from righteous acts.

May I fight without fear all the foes in the battle of life,

With the courage of faith to achieve victory.

May my mind be ingrained with Your Teachings;

May my highest ambition be to utter Your Praises.

And when this mortal life comes to its end,

May I die fighting in battle with limitless courage!
