Raag Soohee – Guru Arjan Dev Ji – Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji – Ang 738
soohee mahalaa panjavaa ||
Soohee, Fifth Mehla:
Kiaa gun tere saar sam(h)aalee moh niragun ke dhaataare ||
Bai khareedh kiaa kare chaturaiee ih jeeau pi(n)dd sabh thaare ||1||
What virtues and excellences of Yours should I cherish and contemplate? I am worthless, while You are the Great Giver.
I am Your slave – what clever tricks could I ever try? This soul and body are totally Yours||1||
Laal ra(n)geele preetam manamohan tere dharasan kau ham baare ||1|| rahaau ||
O my Darling, Blissful Beloved, who fascinates my mind – I am a sacrifice to the Blessed Vision of Your Darshan. ||1||Pause||
Prabh dhaataa moh dheen bhekhaaree tum(h) sadhaa sadhaa aupakaare ||
So kichh naahee j mai te hovai mere ttaakur agam apaare ||2||
O God, You are the Great Giver, and I am just a poor beggar; You are forever and ever benevolent.
I cannot accomplish anything by myself, O my Unapproachable and Infinite Lord and Master. ||2||
Kiaa sev kamaavau kiaa keh reejhaavau bidh kit paavau dharasaare ||
Mit nahee paieeaai a(n)t na laheeaai man tarasai charanaare ||3||
What service can I perform? What should I say to please You? How can I gain the Blessed Vision of Your Darshan?
Your extent cannot be found – Your limits cannot be found. My mind longs for Your Feet. ||3||
Paavau dhaan ddeett hoi maagau mukh laagai sa(n)t renaare ||
Jan naanak kau gur kirapaa dhaaree prabh haath dhei nisataare ||4||6||
I beg with persistence to receive this gift, that the dust of the Saints might touch my face.
The Guru has showered His Mercy upon servant Nanak; reaching out with His Hand, God has delivered him. ||4||6||
