Raag Bilaaval – Guru Amar Das – Siri Guru Granth Sahib Ji – Ang 842
Bilaaval Mahalaa Teeja
Jis daa saahib daadhaa hoi
Tis no maar na saakai koi.
Saahib kee sayvak rehai sarnaaee
Aapay bakhshay day vadiaaee.
Tis tay oopar naahee koi
Kaun darai dar kis kaa hoi.
Gurmatee shaant vasai sareer
Shabad cheen fir lagai na peer.
Aavai na jaai naa dukh paaay
Naamay raatay sehj samaai.
Naanak gurmukh vaykhai hadoor
Mayraa prabh sad rehiaa bharpoor.
Bilaaval, Third Mehla:
One whose Master is All-Powerful –
No one can harm that person.
The Lord’s servant is under His Protection.
The Lord Himself blesses him and bestows greatness.
There is none higher than Him.
Why should His servant fear?
Of whom should he be afraid?
Following the Guru’s Instruction, peace abides in the body.
Dwelling upon the Shabad, the Word, pain shall not overtake you.
You shall come and go no more, and shall not suffer misery.
Imbued with the Naam, the Name of the Lord,
You shall merge in Celestial Bliss.
O Nanak, the GurMukh beholds the Lord near at hand –
My God is ever-present everywhere.
