Raag Dhanaasaree, Fifth Mehl:
One Universal Creator God. By The Grace Of The True Guru:
O God, please save me!
By myself, I cannot do anything, O my Lord and Master; by Your Grace, please bless me with Your Name. || 1 || Pause ||
Family and worldly affairs are an ocean of fire.
Through doubt, emotional attachment and ignorance, we are enveloped in darkness. || 1 ||
High and low, pleasure and pain.
Hunger and thirst are not satisfied. || 2 ||
The mind is engrossed in passion, and the disease of corruption.
The five thieves, the companions, are totally incorrigible. || 3 ||
The beings and souls and wealth of the world are all Yours.
O Nanak, know that the Lord is always near at hand. || 4 || 1 || 19 ||
